Yes – the rumors are flying that Ted Kennedy will endorse Obama for president! It now appears that the endorsement of Obama by Carolyn Kennedy several days ago might have been a trial balloon to see how it floated before Big Teddy came into the fray.
Interestingly, I couldn’t find a single photo of the two of them together. I guess Obama didn’t pay enough into the Kennedy campaign to actually get a picture taken with him.
The NY Times carried the editorial where Carolyn Kennedy compared Obama to her own father – startling at least!
Now that his niece jumped in first and survived, Uncle Teddy might decide to back Mr. Obama too.
Political Radar by ABC carried the Teddy rumor.
Remember – You heard it first here at RightPundits – well, almost first!

WASHINGTON (CNN) — Sen. Edward Kennedy backed Sen. Barack Obama for president Monday, saying, “It is time again for a new generation of leadership.”
Sens. Edward Kennedy and Barack Obama are all smiles after Kennedy endorsed Obama.
“It is time now for Barack Obama,” the Massachusetts senator and brother of the late President Kennedy added.
I guess the rumors were correct…
