Senator Edward M. Kennedy, will be remembered as one of the most influential lawmakers in the history of the Senate of America.
Mr. Kennedy was instrumental to the success of President Barack Obama's election as 44th President of the United States. During the 2008 Democtratic Convention in Denver, CO - Senator Kennedy said, “My fellow Democrats, my fellow Americans, it is so wonderful to be here, and nothing is going to keep me away from this special gathering tonight. I have come here tonight to stand with you to change America, to restore its future, to rise to our best ideals and to elect Barack Obama president of the United States.”
Senator Kennedy will be missed and hopefully his pet bill on Healthcare Reform will become a Law eventually.
