The last of the progressives

Dennis Perrin lays it out.
You can say a lot of negative things about Ted Kennedy that were true, but the man was as much of a progressive force as this rotten system allows. With his wealth, Kennedy could've easily been a Republican and pushed for more perks for the rich. Instead, he championed the powerless and left behind. Maybe he was sincere. Maybe not. But to me, Ted Kennedy was one of the few politicians who genuinely lifted my spirits, and dare I say it, hopes. Another part of my youth has died. RIP Senator Kennedy.

  1. Yes, he was sincere, sincere enough that even uber-conservative columnist Jeff Jacoby had to admit that he admired Kennedy's strength of conviction. No one could keep up that kind of facade for that long.
