Lion of the Senate passes

It is sad news that we now lose Edward Kennedy, senator of Massachusetts, advocate of the needy, and much needy voice for the left in Congress.

TPM has a good view of his life.

They also have President Obama's initial statement and that of Robert Reich.

It is the end of an era.

I have to agree with Crooks and Liars:

They have the video from the convention when he braved his illness to speak for Obama, and for the need for universal health care. It is a good legacy for all of us to fight for.
