Tribute: Teddy Kennedy

posted by Nell Minow

The essence of Sen. Kennedy’s political power was crystallized by Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee, one of many Republicans who worked with the late senator to forge compromises on bills. Alexander called Sen. Kennedy “at once the most partisan and the most constructive United States senator. He could preach the party line as well as bridge differences better than any Democrat.”

This quote in the Washington Post obituary for Teddy Kennedy seems to illuminate the essence of a man who was an idealist and a pragmatist, a man who battled enormous public and private challenges. His example will continue to inspire all who believe that the dream will never die.
