The Boston Globe's Peter Canellos writes that we should credit the 1965 Immigration Act for making a Barack Obama presidency possible. Thus, Obama owes his victory to the Kennedys, at least one of whom will likely serve in the Obama Administration.[Obama victory took root in Kennedy-inspired Immigration Act, November 11, 2008]

Canellos approves of this Kennedy-led balkanization of the country, but fails to mention that Sens. Ted and Bobby Kennedy had promised that it would never take place when they originally advocated for the immigration policy change back in 1965. Email Peter Canellos
