Edward M. Kennedy: 1932-2009

“For me this is a season of hope – new hope for a justice and fair prosperity for the many, and not just for the few – new hope. And this is the cause of my life – new hope that we will break the old gridlock and guarantee that every American – north, south, east, west, young, old – will have decent, quality health care as a fundamental right and not a privilege.”

Sigh.

    Shocking that a Kennedy died of natural causes.

    The Kennedys showed America and the world that compassionate public service, and not merely the wielding of power, is the greatest possible legacy of the upper class.
