Recalling Kennedy: Health Care Players Reflect On His Career

Kaiser Health News reports on the thoughts and recollections of people who knew or worked with Senator Edward Kennedy. "Sen. Edward M. Kennedy knew the rhythms and rules of Congress better than most of his colleagues. While his public persona was one of a raging liberal, the Massachusetts Democrat was a pragmatic lawmaker who created alliances with Republicans to pass major legislation helping people with AIDS, creating a new health care program for children and barring discrimination against people with disabilities" (KHN Staff, 8/26).
