WASHINGTON -- John McCain's coronation was on hold last night. The Arizona senator claimed the title of Republican front-runner, though his rivals vowed that the race would go on. For Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama, there was no such hint of clarity. The inescapable reality of the delegate math meant it would be weeks, if not months, before a Democratic nominee is crowned. "This is like trench warfare," said Bill Carrick, a Democratic strategist. "We're just headed for a long haul here."

Read together, "The Kennedy Women" and "The Other Mrs. Kennedy" are an almost overwhelming catalog of tragedy, dysfunction and scandal, along with endless details on clothes, china and silver patterns. Inevitably, gossip columns have started to seize on what is new, emphasizing the more sensational revelations. These include:* Adultery: According to "The Kennedy Women," Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy not only ignored the philandering of Joseph Kennedy Sr.; she advised her daughters-in-law that that was their lot as well.

THE OTHER MRS. KENNEDY/Ethel Shakel Kennedy: An American Drama of Power, Privilege, and Politics. By Jerry Oppenheimer. St. Martin's Press. 540 pages. $24.95.THIS IS an unnecessarily cruel, vicious biography of a woman who has never run for public office. Not content to attack the late Kennedy husbands, it seems that writers now must assail their widows as well. Kennedy lovers will hate it, and Kennedy haters will love it.The book has particular relevance for Marylanders, however, since Ethel Kennedy's eldest child, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, is now the Free State's first female lieutenant governor, and thus a likely future gubernatorial contender.

If the band had played a song for Kathleen Kennedy Townsend yesterday, a fitting number would have been "Lady in Red."The eldest child of the late Robert F. Kennedy made her debut as the state's first female lieutenant governor in a stylish red tweed suit and short new hairstyle -- leading to speculation that she had a make-over before assuming her historic post.But her chief of staff, Alan Fleischmann, says she didn't revamp her image. She simply got a haircut that gave her a "sporty . . . winter look."

If the Kennedys didn't exist, we'd have to invent them.Or perhaps, some say, that's exactly the problem: A book like Joe McGinniss' controversial "The Last Brother" (Simon & Schuster) is but the latest example of the way fact and fiction, rumor and reality blur when it comes to chronicling this much docu-dramatized family.Their story is, of course, the ultimate page-turner: the immigrant family turned dynasty. The seemingly equal parts of fortune and tragedy, selfless acts and scandalous indulgences.
