WaPo: Passing the Kennedy Torch
TPM: Kennedy Passes The Torch to Obama
HuffPo: The Torch Has Passed to Barack Obama
Wow! What a momentous day. Not just anyone can get that torch!
Wait a minute...what's this? Obama wasn't Kennedy's first choice?
Jan 9, 2007: Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) told Chris Matthews he will back John Kerry for president in 2008.
Suddenly that torch isn't burning quite as brightly. But that certainly won't stop the press and Obama supporters from claiming that he's the new JFK.
(Bonus for my fellow Canadians: who does this remind you of?)
