    The United States lost a giant, a lion and a leader today. My condolences and thoughts go out to Mr. Kennedy and his family today. The dream will never die. For those looking for a fair, semi-in depth examination of Senator Kennedy's life and accomplishments, I recommend the New York Times obituary. Definitely important reading.

    Well, he did have a suspended two-month sentence for waiting so long to report the accident ... that makes it all right, doesn't it? :)

    Not becoming President of the United States wasn't a "consequence"?

    To drunkenly slaughtering a woman and then dehumanizing her by not owning up to it until he figured it'd be in his benefit to do so cuz someone else would find out anyway?

    Maybe. Maybe that's a consequence.

    But I think he shouldn't have had a political career after that at all.

    Serving the third-longest series of terms in the Senate and being widely regarded as a leader of the Democratic Party wasn't a bad substitute. Besides, I think it for his own good that he never became President: people would have constantly compared him to his older brothers, and since neither of them had much chance to become unpopular, it would have been a set-up for failure.

    What did he do, steal a political career? Or was he elected by his constituents, followed by exemplary service in the Senate? And slaughter is an absurd word, even more demagogic than murder, which also has no place in this discussion.

    You're right. He was elected. People did vote for him because they wanted to be represented by him. That's fair enough.

    Perhaps my language is strong, but he did kill someone by acting irresponsibly and only reluctantly came forth when he figured he was in a catch-22 either way, and not coming forward would bear more consequences. I understand that was in the past, he was younger.. he may have "changed." Yet someone in a leadership position had better have a perfect record as they are accountable to and partly responsible for those they serve.

    Personally, if I were one of his constituents, I would not want someone with a history of that degree of irresponsibility representing me. Personally, I abhor politicians and so I give them scant leeway for murky pasts. I'm not apt to forgive them.
