Senator Ted Kennedy

According to CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, Senator Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) is expected to endorse Barack Obama as the Democratic Presidential candidate this afternoon. This follows on the heels of Caroline Kennedy’s endorsement of Obama in a New York Times op-ed segment today, movingly titled A President Like My Father.

The one-two punch provides powerful momentum for Obama. Formerly, Ted Kennedy’s family and the Clintons had a close friendship, often vacationing together at Cape Cod in the summer. More as the story develops.

Update: Announcement to be made at American University in Washington, DC tomorrow morning.
