I commented to my friend the other day how sad it was that Ted Kennedy was being talked about as if he was already dead. Well, now the great Ted Kennedy has passed. While I disagreed with Ted Kennedy just about always politically, he was a man who is to be admired. Kennedy ran for the Presidency in 1980, but he was always suited to be a U.S. Senator. Conservatives often liked to joke about Ted Kennedy, myself included, but that was all in good fun in my case because he really was a great man. Much maligned, but to me the education bill was a great example of bipartisan legislation. If we had more people like Ted Kennedy in the Senate, we could get a lot more done.
People a lot smarter and with a lot more to say on Kennedy will have a lot more to say on the man. I suggest you read a healthy dose of these columns. The passing of Kennedy is the end of an era and its always a good idea to read about great minds such as Kennedy. I will feature some on my “Nic’s Pics” above in the immediate future. God Bless the Kennedy family.
