Obama: A President Like JFK?

It’s a weighty mantle for anyone to wear but Caroline Kennedy has bestowed it upon Barack Obama in today’s New York Times. Word is out, as well, that Ted Kennedy will announce his support for Obama tomorrow in D.C., standing with niece Caroline. And in yesterday‘s NYT, the paper reported that:

In Berlin, newspaper columnists started calling Mr. Obama the “new John F. Kennedy” — no small accolade in a city that reserves a special place for an American leader who, at the height of the cold war, told a divided populace that he, too, was a Berliner. “The black American has become a new Kennedy,” proclaimed the tabloid Bild.

    I think Obama deserves that title. I may not agree with him, but I see his appeal.

    Indeed, he does.

    “Stop making us decide on a candidate NOT based on his abilities to run our country but on his ability to defend himself from attacks.”
