Ted Kennedy was the youngest of the famous Kennedy brothers. The copy is suggesting that as the little brother, he learned to stick up for the little guy. This draws a parallel between his personal life, and his political career. (Please, note to anyone: I don't want to argue about his political career or personal morality. It is enough to know that his career COULD be characterized as 'sticking up for those who are less powerful', and is characterized that way by many of his supporters).

Except for the weird shirt condition, this ad rocks. Very strong and emotional.
