George Bush Award for Excellence
I’m currently watching C-SPAN which is showing a rebroadcast of Senator Edward Kennedy’s 11/7/03 acceptance speech for the George Bush Award for Excellence in Public Service. Not surprised that he would receive an award for public service, just surprised that it would come from the George Bush Presidential Library Foundation. In any event, such a shame the Senator never became President. I know many perceive him as an East Coast Liberal Democrat who is deeply flawed, but as someone who has met him and worked for his organization, let me say that I consider him to be a great man. Say what you want about his indiscretions, but for 41+ years he has done great things for the citizens of Massachusetts and the rest of the nation. Here’s hoping he will continue to serve for many more years to come.
