Rep. Kennedy Opens Up to the Press, the PRECHHSSSSS!!

patrick-kennedy-horiz.jpg Why is Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) leaving Congress?

WaPo’s Philip Rucker writes about it this afternoon in this well worthy of your time profile.

The gist? He seeks a “fuller life” outside of Congress, one that presumably doesn’t include the national press.

An excerpt:
Teddy Kennedy’s youngest child entered the family business at 21, the youngest member of the sprawling political clan ever to win elected office. Now he’s leaving, and he wants to talk about how he anguished over this decision.

“As exciting and as meaningful as work is and as my career is, ultimately something clicked inside of me that there was something that was missing,” Kennedy says. “I want a fuller life.”

Alone with a reporter, the congressman seems liberated. He talks for nearly three hours about the great blessings and heavy burdens of being a Kennedy and losing the desire for politics after his father’s death.
