A Thought About Edward Kennedy

If you haven't yet, give Obama's eulogy of Senator Edward Kennedy a watch:

I've not really followed the whole Kennedy saga, so much of the media blitz going on now is beyond me. But, what struck me about Obama's eulogy was he didn't attempt to gloss over Kennedy's short comings, but that he emphasized it was exactly these short comings that made him into a better person. He found a way to turn his failures into a source of strength for his successes.

I'm all for honoring, and learning from that example. In fact, I can't think of a more honorable trait for a person to have.
