His speech was amazing – you can watch it on broadcast, I’m sure – but what struck me most deeply was his pledge to be there in January when Obama gets sworn in. Two things struck me – one – that as a daughter of a neurosurgeon, I know the odds that he’s going to be beating by making it to January and by being able to be cogent and upright. But also – I totally teared up at the thought of Obama swearing in.
My favorite quote was Kennedy’s close: “The hope rises again and the dream lives on” – it was outstanding that he evoked his brothers John & Bobby.
