We have reached limits of charisma

LET'S face it, Enda Kenny is no John F Kennedy -- but then neither was John F Kennedy. The messiah myth that built up around Kennedy is more ingrained here than in the US.

Kennedy never wrote any of the great speeches, he was distracted all the time by women and brought the world to the brink of nuclear annihilation as a result of an irrational hostility to the Cuban people.

Enda Kenny is no Charlie Haughey or Bertie Ahern either, thank God. I believe Enda Kenny will be like a good referee, most noticeable through his invisibility.
