19. It's so disgusting the way everyone is knocking Kennedy's
assistance to Barack Obama. Regardless of who wins, won't the Kennedys' participation be welcome?

They said on MSNBC that the Obama camp was hoping to get to the magical 40% vote. He actually jumped there once but it has slipped back to 38%. If he maintains at 40%, the delegates he will win will be exacted what he hoped for.

And, he was polling 22% of the vote in Massachusetts before the Kennedy endorsement. How can people say the Kennedys had no influence. I call that a heck of an influence.

Additionally, here's the big one: among the exit polls, Obama is getting about 38% of the Hispanic vote, reducing Hillary's former command of about 6 to 1.

I think Ted, Caroline and Kerry helped Obama tremendously in Massachusetts.


PS the magic number for delegates is 840 - the Obama camp says they are on track.
