Under normal circumstances, Bush’s final state of the union address would have been the biggest story of the day (watch below or read it here). But since this marks the first time that a primary season has begun before the state of the union address, these are not normal circumstances.
The state of the union was eclipsed by the news that both Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy held a rally to announce their endorsement of Barack Obama for President. Caroline Kennedy penned an Op-Ed endorsement over the weekend, but the rally provided the political spectacle. Together the Kennedy’s declared that Obama is the candidate in the mold of JFK.
