Andresflava honors the life and legacy of the Lion of the Senate, Edward M. Kennedy, 1932-2009. His loss is a serious blow to progressives in this country. In his honor, I pray that we mobilize to pass the upcoming legislation he championed.
Senator Edward Kennedy's death marks the twilight of one of America's most fabled political families, with no heirs to the Kennedy name poised to emerge with the same mix of gravitas, ambition and celebrity.
Kennedy, 77, one of the most effective lawmakers in U.S. history and the brother of assassinated President John F. Kennedy, died late on Tuesday after battling brain cancer.
