Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy, the patriarch of the first family of Democratic politics, died Wednesday at his home in HYANNISport, Massachusetts, after a lengthy battle with brain cancer. He was 77.

No plans for a Mahler tribute concert has been announced.

His last words were "I coulda been a contender".

I always had tremendous respect for Senator Kennedy who stood by his principles throughout his life. With his decades of serving as a legislator he had probably more influence than his glorious brothers. You need passion and strong values to follow your political goals over such a long period of time. It is tragic that he died at a time when his voice was needed to accomplish health care for everybody.

I'm sure Mary Jo Kopechne will have plenty to say to him on the other side...

LOL! That's going to be the predicatable joke when Howard Stern comments on Ted Kennedy's death.

The man went through a lot of personal tragedies throughout his lifetime. Still, he persevered and was dedicated.
Its a shame...

My Mum's a lifelong Kennedy admirer and she heard me heckling the news over dinner today.  She warned me off saying "don't you be mocking a dead man!" and my only response was "Which one, I have 3 to pick from now".

The SBS was running a short article on the speaking voice of the Kennedy's and I have to say, they were splendid speakers really.  Maybe I'm just a sucker for that way of orating.

Oh she is a wise one.  It should be noted that she did have a laugh at the same time, of course.
