I heard that Senator Ted Kennedy has been diagnosed with brain cancer today on NPR. Senator Kennedy has served in the Senate for nearly 46 years. While he has been guilty of some indiscretions over the years, his has been a powerful voice for the Democrats and for the country. He has been reviled by the Republicans over the years for his stands for the people of the country, but he has continued to work tirelessly for his beliefs. If he has to leave the Senate, he will be sorely missed. His ability to work with the opposition to attain the best possible outcome will be hard to replace. So, thanks Ted, you did your best.
