The Camelot Endorsement

Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg will back Obama in a New York Times editorial on Sunday, according to MSNBC.

The op-ed will be titled “A President Like My Father.”

“Sometimes it takes a while to recognize that someone has a special
ability to get us to believe in ourselves, to tie that belief to our
highest ideals and imagine that together we can do great things. In
those rare moments, when such a person comes along, we need to put
aside our plans and reach for what we know is possible.

“…I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me
that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have
found the man who could be that president — not just for me, but for a
new generation of Americans.”

There’s been increasing speculation on whether Sen. Edward Kennedy will endorse a candidate.

Obama has captured the support of Ted Sorenson, speechwriter for President John F. Kennedy, while  Hillary Clinton has been endorsed by Robert Kennedy Jr.

  1. Just Like Her Daddy and Worse
    The Princess Royal of the Kennedy clan, who has herself accomplished nothing in life except being born to wealth and privilege, has draped her father’s moth-eaten cloak on Barack Obama, who, in her father’s White House, would have been a footman or cook. Say what you will about Obama, he got there himself without the benefit of a rich daddy or corrupt political machine. He may be more unprepared to be president and more disastrous for this country than was JFK, but we hope, at least, that he will be impervious to “love notes” from middle-aged political camp followers who are still trying to be influential without ever being relevant.
