Senator Edward Kennedy's death

I lived in the Philippines, but I was deeply emotional when I read the news that Senator Kennedy passed away. I grew up admiring the powerful and glamorous Kennedy family and became fascinated with their life story. So fascinated that next the British royal family, I did extensive research about the Kennedys. Senator Kennedy was the last of the celebrated Kennedy brothers and there seemed no one in the second Kennedy generations that is willing to pick up the torch Senator Teddy left. It is so sad he is gone now, he could be an effective US President, just don't look on his scandal's involved in 1969 just look on how he shaped some important reform bill in the senate especially about health care issues. How about anybody there?do you agree that Senator Kennedy was the last heir of America's royalty and political glamorous family?

No, I do not believe that Senator Kennedy was the last heir of America's royalty. This is the reason. The people of the United States are so diversified. We have had many great people involved in government and other sectors of our society which have been great leaders and role models. There are a lot who are not but I believe that there will be someone to carry on and even possibly do just as good or maybe even a better job. In the meantime, Senator Kennedy will be missed by many here.
