Coda to night one. It will be remembered for only one thing: Teddy Kennedy's gallant appearance and wonderfully unpredisposing, even joyful speech. The most moving moment was the most subtle. He made many references to his earlier memorable speeches. But one reference he changed slightly. In his show-stealing "sail against the wind" 1980 convention speech (he played the Hillary Clinton role of the popular runner-up), he ended with “the dream shall never die.” Last night, he ended with “the dream lives on,” an act of sweet defiance of his current perilous physical condition. A nice inflexion and very moving.
