Oprah interviews the Romneys: Miss Winfrey took a trip to Massachusetts this weekend to talk with the Republican presidential candidate and his wife. The interview will run in her “O” Magazine. She remains a strong Obama supporter — an endorsement she first made in 2008, after years of keeping her political views of her media empire. Why haven’t we seen her campaign as hard as she did four years ago? “I will not be out there because I’m trying to fix a network.”  source

tpmmedia:

Rep. Barney Frank (D-MA) married his longtime partner Jim Ready in a small Saturday ceremony in Newton, Mass. on the banks of the Charles River.

Back in 1987, Frank was the first member of Congress to reveal himself as openly gay. Now he’s the first member of Congress to wed a same sex partner. He has served in the House since 1981 retiring at the end of his term.

Frank, 72, and Ready, 42, met at a 2005 fundraiser.

It was no different than any other wedding I’ve attended when you have two people who are in love with each other.
Texas Rep. Al Green • On going to the wedding of Rep. Barney Frank and his longtime partner, James Ready, on Saturday. Current Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick officiated the ceremony, noting (jokingly) that the couple vowed to love one another through Republican and Democratic administrations alike. Though Frank is usually very media-friendly, the soon-to-retire congressman kept his wedding private. “We’re not doing any media today,” he told Reuters. Good for them!

This non-endorsement pledge is unprecedented and is not being required of any other persons or entities. To us, such a pledge seems inappropriate when a non-media sponsor issues a debate invitation. We can assure both campaigns that the debate will be fair, just as the one we cosponsored between Senator Brown and Attorney General Martha Coakley in 2010 was fair.
A statement by the Edward M. Kennedy Institute • Expressing anger over a main condition set by Sen. Scott Brown that he’ll only take part in senatorial debates to be held at the institute on the condition that Vicki Kennedy, Ted Kennedy’s widow who plays a key role in the institute, not endorse anyone in the campaign. Brown’s campaign manager, upon word of this statement, said Brown would decline the offer to debate: “We respect Vicki Kennedy’s decision but we regret that we cannot accept a debate invitation from someone who plans to endorse Scott Brown’s opponent.” (ht sarahlee310)

Watch this video. Feel good about Scott Brown. Then, after you’re done watching the clip of the Massachusetts senator draining a three pointer from half-court, know that Democrats in the state are using this as evidence that the Senator is improperly using taxpayer money to shoot campaign videos, as this video was shot by one of his staffers. Now the answer to that is “uh, of course not, because the congressional staffer was just lucky enough to catch Scott Brown shoot an underhand three pointer from half-court.” But Democrats in Massachusetts are facing trouble of their own, with Elizabeth Warren continuing to face questions about whether she improperly claimed to be Native American during her educational career. But maybe you don’t care about any of that. In that case, we recommend you just watch the video. source

Third-generation Kennedy scoring huge donations in House race

  • $1.3million raised by a Kennedy to replace Barney Frank source

» Joseph P. Kennedy III , the Massachusetts Democrats’ challenger to take over Barney Frank’s soon-to-be-empty seat in the House, raised this impressive amount as a first-time contender within the first three months of the year. His GOP challenger, Sean Bielat, raised just over a tenth of that in the same period. Bielat gave Frank a tough challenge in the 2010 race.
