SANTA FE/ALBUQUERQUE — Sen. Edward Kennedy gave a rousing campaign speech in support of Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama during a stop at Santa Fe Community College Thursday afternoon. Former president Bill Clinton did the same for his wife Hillary in Albuquerque on the University of New Mexico campus.At the Kennedy event, members of a capacity crowd of several hundred people, filling the SFCC Jemez Room and spilling out into the hall, craned their necks to catch a glimpse of the senior senator from Massachusetts. Kennedy spoke to Obama’s positions on the top issues of the day and called the Democratic senator from Illinois a person of strong commitment with the ability to inspire.He told the cheering audience he looks forward to working with Obama on immigration legislation and described his thoughts when he looks out his office window at the Boston harbor. His eight grandparents came to America through that harbor in 1848 with nothing but the clothes on their backs, he said. All they wanted was an opportunity for honest work, a chance to raise their families and worship in the faith of their choice like millions in the U.S.
