As far as the car accident and the bungling of the after math, yes he screwed up. Would we have done time in the same
circumstances? No, probably not.
From a personal point of view, his loss is a huge hit to MASS. Love him or hate him, his political prowess and power were
a huge asset to the Commonwealth. He will be missed.
The righty spin doctors will have to find another target for their ire. I suspect that Obama and Hillary are big enough
targets to absorb that which was expended on Teddy.
I was watching some show last night about him and they were talking about all the legislation he either led or was otherwise closely involved in:
_ National Cancer Act.
_ Title IX.
_ Pregnancy Discrimination Rights.
_ Voting Rights extension.. Did you vote at age 18? Thank Teddy.
_ Americans with Disability act
_Violence against Women act
_Mental Health Parity act.
This is just the short list. And some people think he didn't do anything but have a car wreck which resulted in an unfortunate death.
