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.
