    I love this quote. I feel kind of ambivalent about the Kennedys because they represent privilege (and the ways privilege can encourage you to misbehave, and allow you to get away with it). But I do think that Ted Kennedy is an example of a person who did finally grow up in spite of his privilege and became an advocate for those less privileged than himself. And that is certainly praiseworthy.
