27. more than us needing him
Byrd is a good person, I honestly believe. His suffering over his friend Ted's illness is so like him... caring, open and real. He has spent his life making up for the mistakes of his youth, he's spent his whole life fighting for what he thought was right. I respect nothing more than that. Your past doesn't need to be perfect for you to do the right thing. Many people with an imperfect youth (sorry I still don't buy Bush's 40 year old youthful indiscretions) go on to make great change. God bless them if they work for their constituents, even those they have nothing in common with other than a zip code, or a state code, or a country code, or a planet code. I think both Senator Kennedy and Senator Byrd fall into that category.
