Senator Obama stands in for Ted Kennedy at Wesleyan University

Don't you just love this man?!

Senator Obama stood in for Senator Ted Kennedy due to his battle with cancer, as you've probably heard by now Teddy has a brain tumor.

“It’s only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential,” Senator Barack Obama told graduates at Wesleyan University."

Mr. Obama implored the 737 undergraduates and 100 graduate students to change the country and the world through service to others, a theme Mr. Kennedy planned to focus on. Mr. Obama urged them to help rebuild New Orleans, volunteer at a local soup kitchen or help end the situation in Darfur, and to remember that change will come, though not immediately.

This evening I sat and listened to CNN criticize him for not telling the graduates to enlist in the armed services - WTF!
