Ted Kennedy writing his memoirs

Massachusetts Senator Ted Kennedy is writing his memoirs. (HT: No Runny Eggs)

Financial terms aren't being released, but a publishing official says the deal is comparable to ones given to other politicians recently. Hillary Clinton got eight million dollars for her book, while former British Prime Minister Tony Blair received nine million for his upcoming memoir.

Kennedy has the same agent as Clinton and Blair. The Massachusetts senator says he's been fortunate to have "a front row seat at many key events" in the nation's history. He wants the book to give a "more in-depth picture" of the Kennedys
. How "in-depth"? Six feet?
