Thursday, August 27, 2009

For 47 years, Senator Edward Kennedy was a passionate advocate of liberal causes. Today, he leaves an enormous void, which Massachusetts Democrats will have to fill.

He is the Statehouse bureau chief for the Boston Globe and has covered the Massachusetts Statehouse for nearly 40 years.
