*Breaking News* Obama Filling In For Kennedy At Wesleyan

Okay, so there's been a lot of Wesleyan news on this blog lately, but we thought many of you would find this interesting...

Wesleyan has been looking for a new Commencement Speaker since Senator Kennedy was hospitalized last week. The New York Times now reports that none other than Barack Obama will taking over for the ceremony.

According to The New York Times twenty minutes ago: "Barack Obama has agreed to deliver the commencement address at Wesleyan University in place of Sen. Edward Kennedy, who pulled out Thursday after finding out he had brain cancer."

"I'm looking forward to standing in his place on Sunday, even though I know I won't be able to fill his shoes," says Obama.

Ok, now back to Vassar news...
