Ted Kennedy, as promised, endorsed Obama, and Caroline introduced him, with Obama in attendance -- as he had returned to Washington to vote on the FISA bill. The torch has been passed?
Obama in his own remarks talked about his father's arrival in this country and "that part of what made it possible for him to come here was an effort by the young Senator from Massachusetts at the time, John F. Kennedy, and by a grant from the Kennedy Foundation to help Kenyan students pay for travel. So it is partly because of their generosity that my father came to this country, and because he did, I stand before you today – inspired by America’s past, filled with hope for America’s future, and determined to do my part in writing our next great chapter."
