Senator Kennedy - Reflecting, Toward the End

I like this photo of Ted sitting on the porch of the Kennedy Compound in Hyannisport, looking out over the Nantucket Sound, waters he loved. He may be..... hopefully he is..... reflecting upon his long and productive life of public service.

The "Liberal Lion" they called him, among academics he ranks right up there with Henry Clay of Kentucky, John C. Calhoun of South Carolina, Daniel Webster of Massachusetts, Robert Taft of Ohio, and Lyndon Johnson of Texas, as one of the greatest United States Senators in the esteemed history of the body.

The photo was taken on September 8, 2008. He died about a year later, August 25, 2009.
