Sunlen Miller reports: At our first campaign event of the day today we were all surprised to see Robert De Niro come on stage to introduce Barack Obama. He gave a funny speech tackling the inexperience question head on. Obama took the stage and seemed happy to have De Niro’s support. But he’s not the only one – Obama said his normally cool secret service, became giddy at the sight of De Niro on the trail. His secret service agents – who normally don’t even crack a smile -  were suddenly elbowing each other when De Niro walked in.  Apparently everyone is star struck! Obama was also joined on the trail by Senator Ted Kennedy and Caroline Kennedy, who’s support, is politically crucial, but as far as his secret service is concerned- not quite as exciting.
