<p>In the midst of the covering the U.S. Embassy&rsquo;s reopening in Havana, Cuba on Friday morning, MSNBC&rsquo;s <em>The Rundown</em> couldn&rsquo;t help but repeatedly ooze over the fact that Secretary of State John Kerry attended the ceremony using a walking cane that belonged to former President John F. Kennedy&rsquo;s brother and former fellow Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy.</p>

<p>Gushing that it&rsquo;s <strong>&ldquo;a fascinating backstory,&rdquo; </strong>NBC News chief foreign affairs correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell made the first mention just after 9:00 a.m. Eastern about Kerry using<strong> &ldquo;Teddy Kennedy&rsquo;s cane&rdquo; </strong>that <strong>&ldquo;was offered to him&rdquo;</strong> by the Kennedy family in<strong> &ldquo;such a great symbol, symbolic gesture and as we all know, the history of the Kennedy family, John F. Kennedy, and that&#39;s when relations were broken back in 1961.&rdquo;</strong></p>
