(CNN) – Barack Obama will take Sen. Ted Kennedy's place in delivering the commencement address at Wesleyan University this Sunday.
According to Kennedy's Senate Office, Obama offered to take the Massachusetts senator's place earlier this week after Kennedy was diagnosed with brain cancer.
"Senator Kennedy accepted knowing it would be an historic opportunity for the school and all those attending, including his daughter Caroline Raclin who is graduating and his son Ted Jr. who is attending his reunion," Kennedy's office said in a statement. "He's enormously grateful to Senator Obama and the support he's received from all of his colleagues this last week.”
Way to go Bam!
Great way to help out Ted!
Dust off the teleprompter !
Obama is the real deal. What a gentleman.
Democrats working well together. (While Clinton#2 is tearing us apart.)
How beautiful. Praise God.
YEAH! Barack for America!
Now watch Hillary follow by announcing her commencement speech tour.
good job Obama
I think about all those "If there's anything I can do..." moments when people don't really mean it, and are just saying it to be polite. And then you say, "well you know, I sorta need help with...." And then they say "I'd love to, BUT...."
It seems there are some people that are sincere.
Best wishes to Senator Kennedy and his family. We're with you.
Make him proud Senator Obama.
good job our prayers are with you sen kennedy your family has given so much to this country and we will always be greatfull
Obama shows again that he is always there with a good heart and sincerity to do "WHAT IS RIGHT" for his friends, family, communities, and his country.
Without a Doubt it will be Presidential... !!!
All I can say is WOW!!!!! as a Hillary Supporter present tense. I applaud Obama for stepping up for Kennedy, God bless his heart. Moreover, I can see myself starting to like this guy, Hillary supporters lets be logical. If Kennedy is confident enought that he would allow a junior senator to speak at his behalf says that if Kennedy endorses him, well I will give a try.
This race is not over yet by a long shot no many what OBAMA Supporters say, but I have the Barrack credit for this one. Good Job
Good luck IL Senator. Besh wishes to the Kennedy's family.
Oh that's so sweet I could cry. What a guy that Obama is and don't dare any of you say this is politically motivated.
He looks more and more arogant in every new photo!!! He will burn in November and that would be the end of his political life, for sure!!!
This is the reason, and more why i love this man for who he is, and what he stands for which is UNITY, EQUALITY, FAIRNESS, LOVE, AND PEACE!!!
OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT:)
How sweet it is.
There you go Obama God bless you..
Make that President Obama!
