Watching Ted Kennedy speak

You know, if John F. Kennedy was really more charismatic than Ted Kennedy, I can see why people flocked to him. I'm watching it now - first Robert, then Caroline. Fine speeches.

Then Teddy - and it was like the sun before the moon. It really is a good speech, it's thrilling, it hits the points of experience, gets in very subtle digs, he knows how to play the crowd.

And then I think about the Obama speeches, and he's still better. Damn - makes me wish I had been alive during the JFK days to hear him talk live to compare.

I don't know if he can win. I don't know if he can beat Hilary's head start. But damn - between Teddy and Obama and the like, he's going to give her one *hell* of a fight.
