Ted Kennedy's Speech Opposing the Iraq War
Excellent speech reprinted here. It makes excellent points about war with Iraq being premature. Teddy is remembered most for domestic policy, but from this he was pretty smart about foreign policy as well. I wish this kind of respectful anti-war sentiment had been given more coverage in the media at the time.
