Ted Kennedy Offers Wise Advice: “Don’t Write Off Kerry, Romney”
Don't Write Off Kerry, Romney
Kennedy shrugged off polls showing Senator John Kerry in the single digits -- badly trailing likely candidates Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.
Kennedy said Kerry faced an "uphill battle" before the 2004 campaign for the Democratic nomination, which Kerry won.
Kennedy said he'll endorse Kerry if he opts to run again.
On the Republican side, Kennedy said former Governor Mitt Romney is a strong candidate. He said -- quote -- "I wouldn't underestimate Mitt."
Romney challenged for Kennedy's Senate seat in 1994.
