My coworker Nick Baumann asked me to write up something about the death of Ted Kennedy and I went with the first thing that popped into my head when I heard the news: How does this affect enacting health care reform, Kennedy’s signature issue? RIP Teddy K.
UPDATE: This is another “Must Read” that has also been linked on The Blue Marble’s misleadingly titled “Eco-News Roundup.” Nice.
In Nick’s post about Ted Kennedy’s torch passing to Obama, he wrote that the late senator’s seat would be empty for nearly six months while a special election is organized “unless Massachusetts Dems change the law.” Reports out of the state capital suggest that may happen when the Massachusetts legislature returns to session.
