Ted Kennedy: ‘Last Hurrah’ for Boston Politics?

Ted Kennedy Tribute, originally uploaded by rbtenorio.

People are mourning the death of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-MA) as not only the passing of a great legislator, but also the end of an era of Boston politics in the national spotlight. Many of the politicians from the “Athens of America” had colorful and controversial careers, from the original “Rascal King,” James Michael Curley, to former State Senate and UMass president William Bulger. This tribute edition of “The Devil Made Me Blog It” examines where Ted fits in this cast of characters.
My condolences to the Kennedy family.
