And even David Gergen – erstwhile moderator of the Scott Brown/Martha Coakley debate and director of the Center for Public Leadership at the, ahem, John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University – all refer to the seat being contested in Massachusetts as the “Kennedy Seat.”

If it is indeed a dynastic succession that’s needed, we’ll have to see Coakley’s DNA credentials. A blood relationship to either Teddy or George III would seem necessary.

Scott Brown was up to the bias (of which that “Kennedy seat” presumption is but one example) from the moderator, however. The Q&A is on video here. Watch it.
