ABSTRACT
The article discusses the late Democratic U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy and his legacy of bipartisanship. The author notes that while Kennedy could be very partisan at times he evidenced a willingness to compromise with Republicans, set aside political party differences and defy powerful special interest groups. The author states that Kennedy's willingness to work with Republicans was apparent with the passage of the Child Health Insurance Program in 1997.
