Kennedy's Death

Kennedy entered the Senate a couple years before I was born, and for most of my life he has been the embodiment of the liberal wing of the Democratic party. I can remember my father complaining about the Kennedy family as a whole, and Ted Kennedy in particular, when I was too little to really know what he was talking about.

About the best thing I can say about Senator Kennedy, was that he was a powerful opponent of my side, and an effective spokesman & advocate for his positions -- the vast majority of which I strongly disagree with.  I won't pretend that he'll be missed, any more than anyone on the left mourned the passing of Jesse Helms.
