Teddy Kennedy Sounded The Obama Message in the 1980s


Ted Kennedy Video with Jerry Falwell — Discusses His Faith http://ow.ly/loB5

Teddy Kennedy sounded the Obama message years before the President emerged. This video cuts off — unfortunately — after about five minutes, much of which is interplay between Kennedy and Falwell. But if you listen you will hear the theme of our being yoked together as Americans. Today that theme is the subject of a tug of war. I believe the President is on the side of history and that the apostles of intolerance are a vanishing breed. But as some recent comments here attest, I may be premature in my optimism.
