I think we all experience that with Ted Kennedy’s death we have passed from an era. It is hard to imagine this nation’s history without Kennedys at the forefront. I know the next generation is alive, well and active. That is different. The task now is to finish the work that Ted devoted his life to…and pass a respectable health bill…and name it the Edward Kennedy Health Bill.
It does seem strange to think of the hole that his passing is leaving in the Senate. Even though he has not been physically present for a time…he has been there in everyone’s imagination.
We move on to another era.
