A Farewell to Ted: The Policy & Practice Podcast

From phone interviews and teleconferences.

A touch of somberness was added to the normally very quiet final week of August in Washington, as the nation and the nation’s capital absorbed the news that Ted Kennedy, the second-longest serving Senator, had died after a year-long battle with brain cancer.  The Democratic and fiercely liberal champion of civil rights, health, and human welfare, was mourned and celebrated for several days before a motorcade brought his body to Arlington (Va.) National Cemetery, where he was buried next to his two brothers.

This week, the Policy & Practice Podcast pays tribute to the Senator, with input from President Obama, Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.), and representatives from the American Medical Association and the American Academy of Family Physicians.

Please take a listen. As Sen. Dodd said, there’s unlikely to be another senator like Ted Kennedy.

    homework on this. And he actually bought me breakfast simply because I stumbled
    upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this.
    … Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending some time to
    talk about this subject here on your internet site.
