Ted Kennedy

Ted Kennedy

by Kerrily Sapet




Ted Kennedy was the youngest son of the famous Kennedy family, little brother to President John F. Kennedy and Attorney General Robert Kennedy. Though he was often in his brothers' shadows, Ted also launched a career in politics, getting elected to the U.S. Senate at the age of thirty.

Since then, Kennedy has been a member of the Senate, spending more than four decades serving his country. But despite being born of privilege in one of the America's foremost political families, his life hasn't been easy, and he's had to contend with tragedies-such as the assassinations of his brothers-and scandals. Through it all, though, Kennedy has remained dedicated to his work, and has become one of the most prominent and important senators of his time.
