Sen. Ted Kennedy dies

Sorry to report sad news about a Senate legend: Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Massachusetts) died last night of brain cancer at the age of 77.

The long-serving legislator was widely regarded as one of the greatest senators in modern times - possibly ever.

Kennedy was known to TV audiences in recent years for his Democratic National Convention speeches - some of which were excellent, such as his 2008 speech about health care being a right.

The Senate has lost one of its few remaining great members.
