DARREN: This is a little tradition with us, quizzes at meals. It keeps the Springsteens sharp.
LORELAI: Very Kennedy-esque.
JENNIFER: Mm, we love the Kennedys!
LORELAI: As do we all.

Jennifer says that the Springsteens love the Kennedys, indicating that they are Democrat voters – Connecticut is a Democrat state, and Westport is the most Democrat city of the state. Lorelai is quick to let them know that she is a Democrat voter as well.
