A lot of good can be said for Ted Kennedy.... and one despicable evil. He should have faded into obscurity after the manslaughter incident at Chappaquiddick with his criminal and insidious attempt to hide the facts and avoid being implicated, while a person died who could have been saved..... but his pedigree saved him.
And yet he went on to become a stabilizing force in the United States Senate. Maybe this was his redemption... But a $40M taxpayer funded tribute.... with accolades by our lightweight President seems to be a bit presumptuous.
