WASHINGTON---"I know that he's ready to be president on day one,' said Sen.Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) in endorsing Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) for president, turning a line Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) uses against her.

With Kennedy was son Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) and niece Caroline Kennedy. "Your mother and father would be so proud of you today," Sen. Kennedy said to Caroline.


Te-ddy! Te-ddy!
Phenomenal day on the campaign trail for the Obama Campaign!

If this Kennedy endorsement doesn't put a lot of wind in their sails, I don't know what will. I predict that today is the first day of the rest of the campaign for Barack Obama, and with Kennedy's support he will make it all the way to Denver with a win.

I wish to ask Mr. Obama if he would support term limits on the Senate.
