Thank You For Everything, Teddy

One of my favorite quotes from the last Democratic National Convention came from a commentator. After Sen. Edward Kennedy's rousing speech, Wolf or Chris or Keith or someone said, somewhat quietly, "We've finally seen one of the Kennedy brothers grow old."

Unfortunately, last night we lost the last of the brothers. I know many Republicans out there loved to make fun of Ted Kennedy - and lets be honest, there was a lot to make fun of. There was also a lot to admire - Caroline Kennedy listed just a little bit in her introduction of the Senator at last year's convention:

He was a liberal lion, our Teddy. With all his faults, he kept fighting for what's right up to the end. He'll most surely be missed.
