BARACK OBAMA TO SPEAK AT COMMENCEMENT

NYTimes has an article about it already:

“Ted and I talked about me filling in for him at Wesleyan University earlier this week,” Mr. Obama said in a statement. “Considering what he’s done for me and for our country, there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for him. So I’m looking forward to standing in his place on Sunday even though I know I won’t be able to fill his shoes.”

EDIT: President Roth confirms via email:

It gives me great pleasure to announce that on Sunday, May 25, 2008, United States Senator Barack Obama will deliver the Commencement Address at the 176th Commencement Ceremony at Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut.

Senator Obama is honored to speak on behalf of United States Senator Edward M. Kennedy, who was previously scheduled to deliver the address.

    Wesleyan alumni filled with envy? How about every campus in the country.When Kennedy came to Hartford on the eve of Super Tuesday, it was a big, big deal. And you guys had a big hand in giving Obama a win in Connecticut.You have earned a front seat view of the torch being passed to a new generation. This is bigger than Obama or just one election. It is a power shift of historic proportions. http://john.kilian.com/why
