I’m pretty sure Ted’s view is obscured by flames.
Just before the vote Thursday, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) dedicated the decision, in part, to the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.), who worked for reform but never saw it passed.
“Senator Kennedy knew the day would come when a group of Senators, divided by party, but united by love of country, would see this fight to the finish,” Reid said. “So the day is today. And while I am sad that Senator Kennedy isn’t here to see history made, I know he is looking at us proudly and loudly.”
