The Last Son Of Camelot Senator Ted Kennedy is gone at age 77.
Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, the last surviving brother in a political dynasty and one of the most influential senators in American history, died last night at his home on Cape Cod after a year-long battle with brain cancer. He was 77.
In nearly 50 years in the Senate, Kennedy served alongside 10 presidents – his brother JFK among them – compiling an impressive list of legislative achievements on health care, civil rights, education, immigration and more.
A life coupled with triumph AND personal tragedy.
As The ENQUIRER reported exclusively in our Oct. 20, 2008 issue, Teddy had made a secret trip to Arlington Cemetery In Washington, D.C., picking out his final resting place close to fallen brothers John and Bobby.
"For all those whose cares have been our concern, the work goes on, the cause endures, the hope still lives and the dream shall never die," Kennedy himself vowed in a rousing speech in 1980 after losing the Democratic nomination for President.
