  Kennedy curse
The so-called Kennedy curse is a media creation.
In their attempt to bolster the myth of the Kennedy curse, the media have included self-caused harms as "tragedies." Getting drunk and leaving a girl to drown is a tragedy for the girl's family, not the FK clan.
Dying in a plane crash when you shouldn't be flying a plane, date rape, reckless behavior on a ski slope, having an affair with your babysitter, being arrested for possession of heroin, and dying of a drug overdose are not tragedies.

The "Kennedy curse" that's touched so many members of that family is no more supernatural than the "Bush/Cheney blessing" that's provided such good "luck" for that clan - unless Big Media's your Higher Power* and the DC press corps is its band of Beltway Angels.
You conveniently overlook that the Kennedy incident took place on a public street with a Capitol City Police officer in pursuit, while the Cheney incident took place on isolated private property and was evaluated as an accident.
It is up to them to determine his capacity to continue to serve in the H of R. However, with the Bush family and the enabling parents using the White House as a military school for THEIR family wastrel (well, one of the family neer-do-wells), it is the business of all good Americans.

 Prophetic word for today - The Kennedy curse
The fact that his job position in the Kennedy administration was as "Attorney General" reveals that he had a calling towards the execution of judgments and justice, which is by nature an apostolic endeavor.
Besides this tragedy, the Kennedy family has been haunted by multiple scandals, which has added to the generalized belief that there is some sort of "curse" on the Kennedy family.
Therefore, Joan Kennedy's fractured right shoulder speaks of how Ted Kennedy had a strong calling from God to be a priestly intercessor who covers the weaknesses of others, and it speaks of how he perverted that calling into an active Canaanite defense of values without any regard to God's judgments, righteousness, and truth.
