FromDC2Iowa: Teddy

Excerpted from this post at FromDC2Iowa

I have just heard the Kennedy family's announcement that Senator
Kennedy died late last night, August 25, 2009. If you are too young to
know the details of his life, they will probably be brought to you at
some time during the next week or so. There is no need for me to
repeat them here. But I would like to add my own personal comment. For
his tragic death is, for me, a personal as well as a national,
political and public policy loss. It's not like we lived next door to
each other, or lunched every day. But our lives did intersect in a
variety of ways over the years. We both came to Washington in 1963. He
as a newly-elected U.S. Senator, just barely old enough to meet the
Constitutional standard, on the crest of a dramatic campaign victory
in a race the pundits swore he would lose.
