WHAT WOULD TED SAY?:
Barack Obama made an appearance at Middletown, Connecticut, Sunday to speak at the Wesleyan commencement ceremony where Senator Ted Kennedy was originally scheduled to speak.
On Sunday, May 25, 2008, United States Senator Barack Obama delivered the Commencement Address at the 176th Commencement Ceremony at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.
"Senator Obama is honored to speak on behalf of United States Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who was previously scheduled to deliver the address."
"Ted and I talked about me filling in for him at Wesleyan University earlier this week. Considering what he's done for me and for our country, there's nothing I wouldn’t do for him. So I'm looking forward to standing in his place on Sunday even though I know I won't be able to fill his shoes," Senator Obama said.
*Jon Favreau, Obama's main speech writer, had his plate full putting eloquent words in Obama's mouth, considering those words would also have to fit in Ted's mouth.
Favreau worked Roget's Thesaurus over good while expounding the Speech's main theme: charity~
altruism, beneficence, benignancy, benignity, charitableness, goodwill, grace, kindheartedness, kindliness, kindness, philanthropy.

His biography is well known, and is told in many places, both on the web and in many published works, so this article will focus mainly on his activities as a campaigner against slavery. His opposition to slavery and the slave trade began long before the issue had received widespread attention, and was sustained throughout his life...
OBAMA THE HYPOCRITE!:
