Respect to Senator Kennedy
I've been torn in the coverage of Senator Kennedy's passing. I completely disagree with the idea that he was a bridge between parties, but yet I also don't know how much politics has relevance in death. As a Senator, his life is colored by his political persuasion, but no more than a handy-man should be characterized by his craft. Senator Kennedy should be praised for being a man of convictions, which rarely were swayed. The Lion of the Senate can be contrasted against the lambs, who blew with the wind (or greenbacks). I can agree with the basic sentiments of Senator Kennedy's speeches, which is that the poor need not go under-represented in our chambers. I can disagree with just about everything else. But what I can say, is that this is a man I admire in disagreement.
