After Saturday’s two-to-one beating in South Carolina, Hillary Clinton suffered another blow today when the brother and daughter of her husband’s (still with me?) hero endorsed her opponent.

Teddy and Caroline Kennedy threw their support behind Barack Obama today at American University in DC. Here’s how Politico reported it.
Here’s how the site’s Roger Simon interpreted it:

It was not just an endorsement, it was a rebuke.

Ted Kennedy didn’t just back Barack Obama for president Monday.

Kennedy reprimanded Bill and Hillary Clinton and criticized the campaign they have been running.

“When so many others were silent or simply went along, from the beginning, he opposed the war in Iraq,” Kennedy said of Obama.

Kennedy then thundered: “And let no one deny that truth!”

No one like Bill Clinton, who recently dismissed Obama’s opposition to the war as “the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”
