Ted Kennedy Roars [live blogging]

He is the lion of the Senate and his return to public life tonight is amazing.

He looks fit and healthy.

"We are all called to a better country and a newer world. I pledge to you that I will be there next January on the floor of the United States Senate."

[Chants of Teddy Teddy Teddy]

It is a season of new hope for the many not just the few.

Guarantee every American will have decent, quality health care "as a fundamental right and not a privilege"!

[Crowd explodes]

We can meet these challenges with Barack Obama. Yes we can; and, finally, yes we will!

[Thunderous applause]

Barack Obama will close the book on divisiveness.

Barack Obama will be a commander-in-chief who understands that soldiers should never be committed to a mistake but to a cause worthy of their bravery.

[crowd roars]

Compares the future under an Obama presidency to John Kennedy's "new frontier."


This November the torch will be passed again to a new generation of Americans, so with Barack Obama...our country will be renewed again and we will be committed to his cause.

The dream is renewed.

Thanks Teddy.
