Patrick Kennedy: Life After Politics Inspired by Father, Sen. Ted Kennedy

Friday, June 17, 2011

Father's Day is coming up on Sunday. We've talked a lot about dads this week, about the best fictional fathers and about single dads who are raising their kids on their own. Today we'll hear about an inspirational father, a man who encouraged not only his son, but many of us across the nation. Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy decided not to seek reelection last year. He has focused his life after politics on a new organization called One Mind for Research, a brain research organization inspired by his father, the late Senator Ted Kennedy.

Former Congressman Patrick Kennedy joins us on the phone from Orlando, Florida.
