New York, Jan 28 : US Presidential hopeful Barack Obama was hailed as the next J.F.K. by the late President's daughter, Caroline Kennedy.
US Presidential hopeful Barack Obama was hailed as the next J.F.K. by the late President's daughter, Caroline Kennedy.

The praise and support comes after Obama's landslide victory in the South Carolina primary election.

Writing in a New York Times Op-Ed, Caroline, who has conventionally steered clear of politics, declared that Obama is the most inspirational leader since her father, John F Kennedy.

"Over the years, I've been deeply moved by the people who've told me they wished they could feel inspired and hopeful about America the way people did when my father was president, the New York Post quoted her, as writing in the paper.

"This sense is even more profound today. That is why I am supporting a presidential candidate in the Democratic primaries, Barack Obama.

"I have never had a president who inspired me the way people tell me that my father inspired them. But for the first time, I believe I have found the man who could be that president - not just for me, but for a new generation of Americans," she added.

Her endorsement for Obama coincided with that of her uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy, who declared his total support for Obama's campaign. (ANI)
