Ted Won't Be There As Dems Pays Homage to Kennedys at Convention: Cancer-Stricken Senator Records Video Salute

At the Democratic Convention later this month, the party of Barack Obama will spend some considerable time paying homage to the Kennedy family, including a 5-minute video segment from Sen. Edward Kennedy, the ailing family patriarch who is apparently not well enough to attend. According to the Boston Herald, there will also be a 15-minute video feature on the Kennedy legacy. Here's the 2004 convention speech that Ted gave to Dems, when he supported John Kerry's bid for the White House. This is probably the first Democratic Convention that Ted Kennedy has missed since the 1950s. (I think he was in college when JFK was considered for VP in 1956).
