There were two "Senator Kennedy", Robert (Bob), who was assassinated

I hope this answers your question. Please contact me if you need any
clarification on this answer befoer you rate it. Search strategy:
- Because Sen. Ted Kennedy has recently made remarks comparing Vietnam
and Iraq, many webpages are dedicated to that (especially conservative

the terms "bush" and "iraq" from my searches.
