Ted Kennedy talks about Obama's experience on FOX News

While appearing on "Fox News Sunday" this morning, Sen. Ted Kennedy was asked to compare Barack Obama with his brother, JFK.

Host Chris Wallace asked, "Briefly — we have about a minute left — for all of the excitement about Barack Obama, there's also talk about his inexperience. They said the same thing about your brother John back in 1960. Do you see any parallels?"

Kennedy responded by saying, "Well, first of all, my brothers are my heroes, and they're in a category by themselves. But Barack Obama is talented. I think when you look at — I went to an interesting conference that looked back on presidents, and the historians talked about not only their legislative achievements but also their character, their ability to inspire. Abraham Lincoln, one term in the Congress of the United States and certainly one of our greatest presidents. President Buchanan had been in the Congress 10 terms, had been in the Cabinet, and one of our worst presidents. They all come back to the question, then, of character, their sense of vision that they have for the country, their sense of purpose, and their ability to inspire a nation."

But did he really answer the question?

I bet Obama will either wind up as President or Vice President, based upon his popularity.
