Topic - Edward M. Kennedy
For three days in Charlotte, a parade of prominent Democrats — including former Presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter and President Obama himself — will try to rev up the base with live speeches.

On July 17, 1980, I was sitting with a group of top-flight journalists when out of the blue one of them asked, "What happened in Washington exactly one year ago today?"

Consider it his last call to service.
Below are excerpts from Mr. Kennedy's speech, "Faith, Truth and Tolerance in America," followed by excerpted reflections by the younger Mr. Falwell, published on the school's Web site. The younger man was a Liberty student at the time and is now its chancellor.
Bo? It's no jest. The first family has settled on a first pet — a 6-month-old Portuguese water dog that the Obama girls are naming "Bo."
After his brothers' assassinations, Kennedy wrote in his memoir "True Compass" released last year, that he was easily startled at loud sounds, and would hit the deck whenever a car backfired.
He said he was afraid and "made terrible decisions" and had to live with the guilt for more than four decades.
