Coincidence? Daughters Of Veteran Democrats Ted Kennedy And Walter Mondale Both Die Aged 51 From Brain Conditions

The daughters of two senior Democratic politicians have both died from brain conditions at the age of 51, it was revealed today.

Eleanor Mondale, the daughter of former Vice President Walter Mondale, succumbed to cancer.

And Kara Kennedy, the oldest child of the late Senator Edward Kennedy, after battling a brain tumour.

The remarkable coincidence comes just two years after her father, the brother of assassinated President John F Kennedy, died from the same condition.

The family’s many misfortunes - including the assassination of JFK’s brother Robert and the death of his son John F Kennedy Jr in an air crash – have been described as the Kennedy Curse.

Ms Kennedy, who leaves behind her husband of 21 years, Michael Allen, and their two teenage children, died yesterday at a health club in Washington following her daily workout.

Patrick Kennedy, a former congressman from Rhode Island, today said of his sister: ‘She's with dad.’

These so called 'coincidences' often come in threes ...

One must bring up "Death Comes in Threes" myth.  This time it will be "Political Death Triad" rather than "Celebrity Death Triad".
