Kennedy, Remembered

National Journal has compiled about 40 brief remembrances of Sen. Edward Kennedy from those who knew him--fellow lawmakers, former staffers, and past administration officials. Some highlights: former Sen. Birch Bayh recalls about pulling Kennedy from a plane crash in 1964 and carrying him away from the wreckage, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-MA) says Kennedy was the first to call when his son was born in 1999, and former spokesman Jim Manley says "the man devoured CRS [Congressional Research Service] reports like most people read a cheap novel during August break at the beach."
