The death of Senator Ted Kennedy has left a tremendous void in the U.S. Senate. The Massachusetts Senator also leaves a tremendous legacy that spans decades of public service. In my opinion, his record is one that may never again be equaled. His legacy covers lots of ground in many areas over his years in public life. Ted Kennedy’s work as a member of the Senate touched nearly every major area of the law. Long a champion of ordinary folks, the youngest of the Kennedy brothers accomplished much good during his 47 years in the Senate. He left his imprint, either as original sponsor or a leading proponent, on the nation’s landmark voting rights laws, its workplace discrimination laws, immigration reform, judicial nominations and other major issues. It’s most unfortunate that the man who fought so hard for healthcare reform won’t be around to see it become a reality.
Ted Kennedy was a liberal by belief and certainly by choice and he never made any apology for either. He took stands on important issues and, regardless of how tough the opposition became, he never wavered in his positions. Many of the issues he fought for were controversial and some were highly unpopular. But no American citizen, regardless of political party or affiliation, can say the man called the Lion of the Senate was anything but sincere. He will be missed by friend and foe alike!
