Judith, I've been reading through Bobby Kennedy's 1967 book, "To Seek a Newer World" in preparation for a blog I'm going to post this week, marking the 40th anniversary of his assassination. The similarities to Barack are striking. "I run for the Presidency because I want the Democratic Party and the United States of America to stand for hope instead of despair." Stay tuned...

Your enthusiasm for Mr B is well-founded!

Great quote! Thank you. The Kennedys were such great leaders. I'll be looking for your post this week.

I think Barack is a true political descendant of RFK. Did you ever read the off-the-cuff speech Bobby gave when he first heard of MLK's assassination? What inspired spontaneity! (http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/rfk.htm)
I just posted my own perspective on RFK on www.rockandrolllessons.blogspot.com

Hopefully Barack will have a smoother path ahead of him.

John...I checked out the Bobby Kennedy's speech on youtube and was simply silenced by its beauty. I was also silenced by the beauty of your post. Thank you

And...I couldn't agree more, John, about Barack being a true "political descendant" of the spirit and message of Bobby Kennedy. I think Ted and Caroline Kennedy identified immediately with Barack largely because of this kindred spirit and message, as did millions of voters.
