What an unearthed gem

Found through TPM. Ted Kennedy speaking in Alaska in April 1968 just three days after King was assassinated and filling in for his Brother.

If you are in a hurry fast forward to about 5:10 and listen on as this becomes an amazing recitation of what liberalism is and should be.

Now compare it to this piece of stunning stupidity from Michael Steele today as a defense of conservatism.

UPDATE: It turns out, Jane Hamsher was actually present when Kennedy gave this speech and puts it into some context.
