The tribute video to Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)

DENVER–Caroline Kennedy Schlossberg, the daughter of former President John Kennedy, said people keep telling her it feels like 1960 again while introducing a tribute to her uncle, Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.).

“Everywhere I go in this country, people tell me that Barack Obama is making them feel hopeful the way they did when my father was president,” she said.

“I have never had someone inspire me the way people tell me my father inspired them, but I do now: Barack Obama,” she added.

She introduced a moving video of her Ted Kennedy, who is suffering from brain cancer and undergoing chemotherapy treatment: “And I know someone else who’s been inspired all over again by Senator Obama. In our family, he’s known as Uncle Teddy. More than any senator of his generation, or perhaps any generation, Teddy has made life better for people in this country and around the world.”
