Caroline Kennedy urged voters to work to re-elect Barack Obama, recalling the event four years ago when her late uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy, endorsed Obama before a crowd of enthusiastic students and supporters at American University in Washington DC.
"The 2012 election will be harder than the last," Caroline said. "In his speech four years ago, Teddy reminded us all of that bright light of hope and possibility that shines even in the darkest hours. He knew that with Barack Obama as president, America would shine again. I don't think he would be surprised to know that four years later, this president would have ended the war in Iraq, repealed 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' and guaranteed women the right to equal pay for equal work."
