The Kennedys Enter the Presidential Race

The Kennedy Clan has entered the fray for Obama and Clinton. Word is that Senator Edward Kennedy is going to endorse Barack Obama on Monday. And the Sunday New York Times carried an op-ed piece by Caroline Kennedy endorsing Obama also.

Senator Kennedy’s endorsement is a rebuke to the Clintons. Bill Clinton is reported to have urged Senator Kennedy to stay neutral.

Meanwhile Hillary Clinton issued a statement from Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, the former Lt Governor of Maryland and daughter of Robert Kennedy, reiterating her reasons for supporting Senator Clinton. Clinton also has received the endorsement of Robert F Kennedy, Jr.
