10. Thanks "NE"...about Kennedy...
As far as Kennedy, he was one of the most loyal Democrats who ever lived. In communications with constiuents, He described health care as "the cause of my life." And, indeed, his record on health care, community health centers, etc. is awe inspiring.

His death was such a Huge Loss...and one never hears much about him on Dem Sites these days. :-(
