Senator Kennedy, RIP -- August 26, 2009

Senator Edward Kennedy died yesterday. He led an awful personal life, at least until his second marriage. His cheating at Harvard and his part in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne were things to be ashamed of, but he tried to atone for them, and became a defender of the disadvantaged. I hope that this will give Congress a push to pass meaningful health care reform.

"For me, a few hours ago, this campaign came to an end. For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives, and the dream shall never die."
