Senator Edward Kennedy appeared Monday night to the rousing cheers of more than 4,000 delegates, laughing after his presence was kept secret for more than 15 minutes during a video tribute.

"It is so wonderful to be here. Nothing, nothing is going to keep me away from this special gathering tonight," Kennedy said.

"I have come here to elect Barack Obama president of the United States." ( dpa )
