Ted Kennedy Was Great That Time, When He Let Ronald Reagan Win

News


We have been trying to find a full clip of Ted Kennedy's "concession" speech to Jimmy Carter at the 1980 Democratic convention, which is about as fine a political speech as you're likely to hear, ever, and most famous for its "The Dream Will Never Die" ending, which is... just... MMMM. It was so incredible that it may have fractured the party for good that year and helped Ronald Reagan win, but hey, whatcha gonna do. Anyway, the Boston Globe has been waiting for Teddy to die for some time and today has posted a well produced, multi-part biography on the YouTubes. Here is the segment on his 1980 speech, the text of which can be found here. Finally: audio of the last seven or so minutes. [YouTube]
