The wonderful thing about the human spirit is that it can change. Case in point is that Sen. Robert Byrd has endorsed Sen. Barack Obama.
WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Robert C. Byrd, a former member of the Ku Klux Klan and a one- time opponent of civil rights legislation, is endorsing Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination.
Obama is vying to be the nation's first black president.
The West Virginia senator says Obama has the qualities to end the Iraq war.
In a written statement, Byrd called Obama "a shining young statesman, who possesses the personal temperament and courage necessary to extricate our country from this costly misadventure in Iraq."
Byrd is the longest-serving senator in history and third person in the line of presidential succession.
See, there is hope for our Country and World. If a former KKK member can endorse a black man, think of what is possible in our world.
