According to just about everybody, Teddy Kennedy represented the “soul” of the Democratic party, which presumably refers to his long-professed concern the poor and the weak. Now that that soul is safely buried, the Dems can move on to the important stuff, like preserving Wall Street power and escalating the war in Afghanistan.

Left economist Doug Henwood goes on to detail the major role Ted Kennedy played in transportation deregulation, something which directly led to a decline in working class living standards – and decimated the airline industry as well.
