The Kennedy’s, arguably the most prominent family in American politics and government, suffered another sad loss with the death of Massachusetts Senator Edward “Ted” Kennedy after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. Ted, was the patriarch and cornerstone of the Kennedy legacy. He held the family together through so much personal tragedy, sometimes called the “Kennedy Curse”. So much tragedy for one family to bear, but through it all, Ted continue to be a champion for Democrats and also earned the respect of Republicans.
Ted has left very big shoes to fill here in Massachusetts and will be missed in the Bay state, as well as the U.S. Senate.
