I just wanted to quickly take reflect on the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy (D-MA) late last night. While I disagreed with him in almost every way politically, I still recognize that he was a great American and a great politician, somebody who I truly believe had the best interests for America at heart.
Over the past year and a half, he battled a brain tumor, living longer than his doctors thought he would – and that was was Senator Kennedy was all about – continuing the fight and never giving up.
He was somebody who never backed down from what he believed in. He did a lot of good for America, and while I may not miss most of his political positions, I will surely miss him.
Senator Kennedy, you were a great American.
My thoughts and prayers are with the friends and family of Senator Kennedy.
