Term Limits, Sen. Kennedy?

In a much-hyped rally announcing his endorsement of presidential hopeful Barack Obama, Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) piled heaps of praise on the young Illinois senator Monday. Obama, Kennedy said, will be a fighter, an inspirer, a great uniter in the image of Kennedy’s brother Jack, who came to power in another era of ideological bickering.

In a not-so veiled reference to the partisan rancor that Obama’s chief primary rival, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton, seems to incite, Kennedy heralded Obama as the only candidate whose “extraordinary gifts of leadership and character [are] matched to the extraordinary demands of this moment in history.”

That wasn’t all. In backhanded slaps at Clinton, Kennedy also praised Obama for choosing public service above corporate law, opposing the Iraq War from the start, and inspiring an outpouring of support that transcends race, gender and even political party.

Kennedy then concluded his speech by imploring the (mostly student) crowd gathered at American University in Washington “to have the courage to choose change. It’s time again,” he said, “for a new generation of leadership.”

Question: Does this apply to congressmen as well, or just the executive branch? Because it sure is a curious sentiment coming from an eight-term senator - first elected when he was 30 - who just last year celebrated his 45th year in the chamber.

Term limits, anyone?
