Thank you Sen. Kennedy for giving us President Obama
Edited on Wed Aug-26-09 01:18 PM by prolesunited
to carry forward the Kennedy family's legacy.

His endorsement came at such a pivotal time in Obama's campaign and helped give him the momentum needed to clinch the nomination.

Imagine, Kennedy was such a vocal supporter of civil rights legislation after JFK's assassination. Then he worked so hard to ensure opportunities and education for all. To see his own legacy culminate in the election of the first African-American president is simply astounding. What an incredible place in history Sen. Kennedy holds.

The dream lives on...

It is up to us to make it a reality.

6. The Kennedy endorsement was a crucial step in showing America that Obama was for real
Ultimately Obama got to the nomination because he planned for a drawn out post Super Tuesday campaign and Clinton didn't. But had it not been for Kennedy's endorsement there may not have been a post Super Tuesday campaign.
