Remembering the Lion of the Senate

I’d be remiss to not mention here today that it is the one year anniversary of Senator Ted Kennedy’s death.

I’ve thought many times over the past year, each time the Senate faltered on important legislation, that if Kennedy were still alive we’d be getting this stuff passed.

As Peter S. Canellos notes today in the Boston Globe: “The sad truth is that Kennedy died at just the moment when his blend of skills and relationships — particularly with Obama — was most needed.”

Yes, he is missed… The Senate isn’t functioning worth a damn with out him… And, the little people lost a great champion when Kennedy passed away.

Now, we can only sit back and reflect on the legacy he left behind, as Vincent Bzdek does his book,  “The Kennedy Legacy: Jack, Bobby and Ted and a Family Dream Fulfilled.” 

The dream lives on…”

Listen to: Remembering Ted Kennedy, 1 Year Later and read: Kennedy is remembered in Worcester and on the Cape.
