Barack Obama Gets Keys to 21st Century Camelot

Lifting spirits with poignant prose and shedding white light on the elegant daughter of the King and Queen of Camelot's decision to graciously support and generously endorse Barack Obama for president, appeared for the entire world to see Sunday in the New York Times. Caroline Kennedy, like the rest of us in America, wants to Believe again by voting for an inspirational president like her father. Let Her Words Go Forth, The Torch has been Passed.

Senator Obama is running a dignified and honest campaign. He has spoken eloquently about the role of faith in his life, and opened a window into his character in two compelling books. And when it comes to judgment, Barack Obama made the right call on the most important issue of our time by opposing the war in Iraq from the beginning.

I want a president who understands that his responsibility is to articulate a vision and encourage others to achieve it; who holds himself, and those around him, to the highest ethical standards; who appeals to the hopes of those who still believe in the American Dream, and those around the world who still believe in the American ideal; and who can lift our spirits, and make us believe again that our country needs every one of us to get involved.

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.

Her endorsement will reverberate around the world. Tirelessly and without public fanfare, she works in her communtity and thinks long and hard before she bestows the Profiles in Courage Awards on recipients that showed political valor under great duress. On the heels of her eloquence comes one of the great senatorial orators, Ted Kennedy, to make his choice known in this historic Age of American political renaissance. Now, the last living brother of John F. Kennedy, the poetic silver maned liberal Lion of the US Senate is coming out to make one of the greatest endorsements for president in his lifetime.
