It's been less than three years since the death of Sen. Ted Kennedy left Massachusetts without a Kennedy in Congress, something that hadn't happened for more than 60 years. Joseph Kennedy III aims to change that this November. The redheaded grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy has announced his candidacy to replace retiring Rep. Barney Frank in Massachusetts' 4th Congressional District. “My family has had the great privilege of serving Massachusetts before,” Kennedy said in a three-minute Web video titled “I'm Running.” “They taught me that public service is an honor, given in trust, and that trust must be earned each and every day. That's exactly what I intend to do.” Kennedy, 31, is a graduate of Stanford University and Harvard Law School.

The making of a President 1988 was pretty hot news in the land of Michael Dukakis, but there's also been considerable local interest in the making of "The Kennedys of Massachusetts." The six-hour miniseries for ABC is based on "The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys," a history of the famous families, published last year by author-scholar Doris Kearns Goodwin. The saga has its own Hollywood aspect: Joseph P.

These are the immutable assumptions of life in this commonwealth of Massachusetts: Leaves will drop, snow will fall, the Red Sox will lose and the Kennedys will win. But last week, as Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy II prepared to become the first member of his family to lay claim to Massachusetts' gold-domed statehouse, the last part of that axiom seemed in jeopardy.

We speak of the Kennedys, en masse and individually, as if they were neighbors who have lived next door to us for years. We are quick to judge as we monitor their comings and going and bear witness to their accomplishments, misdeeds and sorrows. After all, we know them so intimately.

In the introduction of Cari Beauchamp's crackling page-turner "Joseph P. Kennedy Presents: His Hollywood Years," this top-flight film historian declares that the father of JFK "saw everything and everyone, from Gloria Swanson to Adolf Hitler, through a lens of dollars and cents." Beauchamp demonstrates again and again that, apart from his abiding love and concern for his nine children (and perhaps a few others, including Marion Davies), the bottom line was everything.

Something holds them together. Some quality, some strand that only they can see and feel, binds the Kennedys through unfathomable sadness. Just what it is is anybody's guess, said John Seigenthaler, director of the 1st Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University and a former administrative assistant to Robert F. Kennedy. "But like no other family I know . . . there are remarkable bonds of love that pull them together," Seigenthaler said. "I think they find strength in each other."

Gloria Swanson didn't appear to have much reason to embellish the truth when she claimed in "Swanson on Swanson," an autobiography published by Random House in 1980, that she'd had a three-year love affair with Joseph P. Kennedy. By then, she'd had six husbands, including actor Wallace Beery, a French marquis and businessman Herbert K. Somborn, who used the money he received in their divorce settlement to open the Brown Derby restaurant.
