Bobby Kennedy, Jr and Sister Endorse Hillary Clinton
The Kennedy family is not united in its support for Barack Obama. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend issued a statement today:
Update: Ted Kennedy and his son Patrick Kennedy say they will campaign around the country for Barack Obama.
"I respect Caroline and Teddy's decision but I have made a different choice. While I admire Senator Obama greatly, I have known Hillary Clinton for over 25 years and have seen first hand how she gets results. As a woman, leader, and person of deep convictions, I believe Hillary Clinton would make the best possible choice for president.
She shares so many of the concerns of my father. Hillary has spent a lifetime speaking out on behalf of the powerless and working to alleviate poverty, in our country and around the world. I have seen her work up close and know she will be a great President. At this moment when so much is at stake at home and overseas, I urge our fellow Americans to support Hillary Clinton. That is why my brother Bobby, my sister Kerry, and I are supporting Hillary Clinton."
