What Does the Kennedy Name Mean Now?

From a Washington Post story by Maura Judkis headlined “What does the Kennedy name mean now?”:

Perhaps Camelot, as a political metaphor, used to feel like an actual castle: sturdy stone walls, beautiful gardens and admirers strolling on hallowed grounds tended by generations of Kennedys, ever since Jackie first verbalized the symbolism in the days after her husband’s assassination.

But at the moment, you might argue that Camelot is represented not by a turreted castle but by a squat nightclub named Vibe outside of Annapolis, Md., where disco balls illuminated the eager faces of hundreds gathered last week to see the most prominent — or most visible — member of the family, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is now running an independent campaign for president.
