He's been called the 'lion of the left' and is probably the single most responsible political leader in the country for pulling the Democrat party into the wing fringes.
Now he has brain cancer. I am very sorry for his family. My prayers go out for them. It must be very difficult for all the Kennedy's. But my heart also hurts for another family this day.
Missing from the effusive left/right/center media coverage today is the reference to another well-documented part of Senator Kennedy's past, the drowning death of a young secretary he was 'dating' over 30 years ago.
