Ted Kennedy at DNC. Aging Lion King still has a few roars left

When was the last time a Democratic convention keynote speaker was played off the stage by a song written by a current Democratic Member of Congress?

Sen. Ted Kennedy leaves the stage to Rep. John Hall’s “Still the One.”

In The Dark Knight, the latest Batman movie, the Joker says “You either die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain” but I think Ted Kennedy has done it the other way around. His self-induced horrors at Chappaquiddick decades ago were an abyss but he came off the mat, re-dedicated himself to public service and his legacy has been huge.
