Product Description:

The legacy of the Kennedy clan stretches far and wide throughout the political spectrum. With descendents of the late John F. Kennedy still entering into the game, it often seems as if the family's genealogy is permanently entwined with the American political system. But woe betide anyone who steps in their way, for they will enter into a battle against a formidable power. Kevin Vigilante--a Republican politician based in Rhode Island--was someone who did, as he took on Democrat Patrick Kennedy in a vicious fight for a U.S. House seat. With little experience to draw on, it looked a dead cert that Vigilante would fall by the wayside long before the contest was nearing its close. This didn't prove to be the case, however, as Joshua Seftel details in TAKING ON THE KENNEDYS. Providing ample footage of both campaigns, Seftel takes an intricate look at the tactics, both fair and foul, that the candidates utilized. With contributions and footage culled from various members of the Kennedy clan (including Senator Ted Kennedy, John F. Kennedy Jr. and others), this is a thought provoking portrait of contemporary politics that really gets behind the motives and strategies of the people involved.
