Teddy Kennedy

So many have had such elegant words about Teddy Kennedy these past 24 hours. Joe Biden's comments are stirring. Real. It was Teddy Kennedy that swung the primary process last year, in late January, when he endorsed Barack Obama. It came right after some poorly chosen words by the Clintons - like he thought, enough is enough. I knew something big was getting ready to happen. The next day, Teddy Kennedy endorsed. He helped so many, broadly and individually. I've been teary-eyed off and on this past day, remembering him and listening to others remember him. Listening to Joe Biden now, as I write this, makes me teary-eyed again.
