Ted Kennedy: 'I feel change in the air'

Alert: See video of Senator Ted Kennedy's endorsement of Barack Obama.

It was as close as it gets to a coronation. In front of a rapturous, chanting crowd, Ted Kennedy today enfolded Barack Obama into a hug, and in that instant drew a clear line of succession from the Democratic heroes of the past to a younger generation.

Now it was official: Obama was the rightful political heir to John F Kennedy as designated by his brother, Ted, his daughter, Caroline, and his nephew, Patrick.

"I feel change in the air," Ted Kennedy roared, and the crowd roared with him.
