The children: Ted, John, etc ... were raised in this atmosphere & showered with wealth -- they knew no other lifestyle. That grew into a sense of entitlement that is clearly seen in their arrogance. That arrogance has spread like herpes to the rest of the career politicians that aspire to have a near 5 decade run of corruption, as Ted did.
I don't really care how bad this sounds, but it is the truth -- Ted dying was the best thing that ever happened to MA politically. It's as if a dictator has finally let go of the reins.
