Teddy Kennedy Passed Away at 77. RIP LIberal Lion

Today the United States lost one of its most liberal and long serving Senators. Senator Edward Kennedy passed away today at the age of 77.
I didn't always agree with Ted Kennedy and I am not very happy that he called Hillary Clinton a racist on the Senate floor but I do offer my condolences to his family and to the people of Massachusetts. He was the brother of President John F. Kennedy and Senator Bobby Kennedy. Teddy Kennedy lost a bitter Primary battle against Jimmy Carter in 1980.
He was the third longest Senator in history.
I didn't always agree with Kennedy but he was most definitely a force to be reckoned with.

Clinton Statement: Passing of Senator Ted Kennedy
Senator Ted Kennedy was one of the most influential leaders of our time, and one of the greatest senators in American history. His big heart, sharp mind, and boundless energy were gifts he gave to make our democracy a more perfect union.
