Kennedy is all on his own in regards to Adams

Other US politicians don't share the views of Irish-America's most notorious alcoholic:

Rep. Richard Neal said Monday he will meet with Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams, splitting with the state's senior Democrat, Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

"Since 1995, it has been U.S. Rep. Neal's policy to meet with the leaders of all the political parties in Northern Ireland," said Neal spokesman William Tranghese. "That policy will not change this year. He will meet with Gerry Adams and his message will be that all the guns should be taken out of Irish politics."

Kennedy's refusal to meet with Adams -- shunning him for the first time in seven years -- triggered criticism Monday from Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y.

"Ted Kennedy is wrong. Gerry Adams has proven himself over the last ten years as being committed to the peace process," said King, who plans to meet with Adams and Neal.

Kennedy should stick to what he is good at like getting drunk and letting women drown to save his own political career.
