Ted Kennedy To Endorse Obama

Wow. Sucks to be a Clinton. The filthy tone of the Clinton campaign -- especially their comparison to Obama's South Carolina victory to the marginal campaigns of Jesse Jackson in '84 and '88 -- have driven Ted Kennedy to endorse Senator Barack Obama, thereby conferring the much-saught-after patina of Camelot (Patrick joins Caroline and Ted). Let's see if the Clinton's continue their race and gender based divide-and-conquer routine. From MSNBC:

"Ted Kennedy Is All In: The New York Times front-pages the news of Ted Kennedy endorsing Obama, which occurs today at 12:15 pm ET at American University in DC. "Both the Clintons and their allies had pressed Mr. Kennedy for weeks to remain neutral in the Democratic race, but Mr. Kennedy had become increasingly disenchanted with the tone of the Clinton campaign… He and former President Bill Clinton had a heated telephone exchange earlier this month over what Mr. Kennedy considered misleading statements by Mr. Clinton about Mr. Obama, as well as his injection of race into the campaign."
