Ted, Caroline & Patrick Kennedy Endorse Barack Obama

Two generations of Kennedys endorsed Barack Obama for president on Monday, with Sen. Edward "Ted" Kennedy calling him a "man with extraordinary gifts of leadership and character," a worthy heir to his assassinated brother. "I feel change in the air," Kennedy said in remarks sprinkled with scarcely veiled criticism of Obama's chief rival for the nomination, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, as well as her husband, the former president. "I have marveled at his grit and grace," he said of the man a full generation younger than he is.

Kennedy broke his usually neutral stance reportedly because he had been under considerable pressure from Bill Clinton and other Hillary Clinton surrogates to either endorse Hillary or to not endorse anyone at all. Kennedy, obviously dismayed at Bill's "over the top" actions recently which included distorting Obama's record, decided to take a stand.

First, we have Caroline Kennedy's inspirational endorsement of Obama:

Then, we have the impassioned endorsement of Edward "Ted" Kennedy, whose two brothers were slain while devoting their efforts to improve America.
