Ted Kennedy Endorses Barack Obama
In his endorsement of Barack Obama, Ted Kennedy takes several shots at Hillary and Bill Clinton.
We know the true record of Barack Obama," Kennedy told the crowd. "There is the courage. When so many others were silent or simply went along. From the beginning he opposed the war in Iraq. And let no one deny that truth.
"With Barack Obama we will turn the page on the old politics of representation and distortion," Kennedy added. The Senator asked Bill Clinton to tone down his attacks on Obama. Clinton refused. The Clinton campaign will slime Obama until they either lose or get the nomination.
Personally, I am becoming less impressed with Obama. An Obama presidency will Jimmy Carter without the policy wonkery. How does he plan to deal with Republicans, if he can't get the Clintons to play nice with him. Hope is a campaign slogan. Not a plan.
