He will be missed. Here’s Kennedy’s speech one year ago today at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

UPDATE: Senator McCaskill’s statement on the passing of her colleague:

“This man was so much more than his image,” McCaskill said.  “While his vision soared, the power of his personality and the magnet of his intellect drew his colleagues to the table of compromise.  It was there he did his best work.  His love for the little guy and his affection for the underdog influenced everything he did.  And importantly, his sense of humor and contagious laughter made him real and approachable in spite of his power and privilege.”

If I get any more comments from Missouri politicians, I’ll post them here.
