If you thought we'd exhausted our supply of Kennedy family members to consider for elected office, think again. From the Sacramento Bee:

Bobby Shriver, the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and the brother of California first lady Maria Shriver, is mulling a run for state attorney general next year, according to his political adviser.

The 54-year-old Democrat is a member of what is perhaps America's most famous political dynasty, the Kennedy clan.

His father, Sargent Shriver, was the 1972 Democratic candidate for vice president. Of his other uncles, Robert Kennedy was U.S. attorney general and U.S. senator, and Ted Kennedy has served in the U.S. Senate for years.

Maria Shriver, on the other hand, isn't a candidate for anything.
