Byrd said he hoped healthcare reform legislation in the Senate would be renamed in memoriam of Kennedy.

    Unlike in most states, a successor to fill Sen. Edward Kennedy’s seat in the Senate will be chosen through a special election, not by the governor.

    This means one less vote for the health care bill, but perhaps Teddy in death will inspire those on the fence to take a stand and thus actually be the catalyst for a bill of substance.

    Very very sad. And what a legacy he has left. I hope that everyone now will band together and pass the Health Care Reform with a Public Option.

    He guys, it’s me Betsy. Had to change my log in so I could get on to the blog. 🙂

    LOL, well, it’s the only way I could get on here. Still can’t seem to post anything. But I think I will let that rest today out of respect for Teddy.
    Stayed up late last night to see the Rockies beat the Dodgers and then went to bed without checking the news. But I don’t think it came over the news before midnight. Not sure though. Who will take his place. I hope someone as strong and as dedicated to the rights of people as he was. Maybe one of his sons.
