Great day for African American's and great day for Democrats' was sorry to hear that Ted Kennedy was taken ill with a seizure, he must be proud to see history being marked knowing that both his brothers and Martin Luther King died senseless deaths. God be with you Ted and recover soon. Obama the American people are here for you and ready to remake the dream.
