No Democrat who calls himself a uniter should be taking cheap shots at Ted Kennedy, of all people, on healthcare, of all subjects. I just saw footage (click here) of Barack Obama from 2003 – and 2003 is not that long ago, kids – in his state senator days, when he actually said: “Ted, you’re getting a little old now…Ted, get some spine and stand up to the Republicans.” Telling TED KENNEDY to stand up to the Republicans?? This sounds far more like the Republican attack machine than Democrats talking about one of their own. Is calling Ted Kennedy old and spineless how Barack Obama envisions bi-partisanship? I want to believe a lot of what he says, but I just can’t when I see how he is in reality.
