    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.

    Really Scott? Ted was responsible for the 26th Amendment?

    I can honestly state that the very first time I voted I was about 22. I registered as a Democrat. I was in Germany before that and was too busy working, traveling and having a hell of a good time to care about politics in the good ole USA. I was even fortunate enough to have been out of country for the whole Nixon debacle.

    I am sure there are many more pieces of legislation that one could point to that Ted sponsored, this can't be that hard can it? After all, the man was in office for 40 years!

    My guess is Kennedy's name will be attached to the bill and Democrats will have momentum.

    The health reform debate is far from over. Kennedy's death breathed new life into it.

    The longer it drags on, the better for the democrats.
