Big Comparisons

After delivering his impassioned keynote speech at the 2004 Democratic National Convention, many historians compared Obama's ideology and style to President John F. Kennedy. The late Sen.Ted Kennedy, pictured above with Obama in 2008, was an ally in Obama's election in 2008. John F. Kennedy's daughter, Caroline, is set to speak at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte.
