Observing Ted Kennedy’s Birthday

February 22, 2015

When I was teenager and now decades later into my adult life there remains one politician who I more than any other respect for continually fighting for the things he believed in no matter how uphill the fight had to be waged.  Ted Kennedy was my type of liberal Democrat.  He had vision, spine, and hope for the future of this country.

On this day in 1932 Edward Kennedy was born–but we all know him as Ted.

I will never forget watching the stirring speech he gave in 1980 at the Democratic National Convention.  His words mean as much now for the times which we live as they did then in the heat of the presidential campaign.
