Q. Can you think of a greatest living American?

Reid: I’m glad I had the opportunity to know Ted Kennedy.  Whether you agreed with him or not, what a life he led with his two brothers being assassinated, his other brother being killed in World War II.  And Robert Byrd, who just died.  What a, what a — he was in the Congress of the United States for more than 25% of the time that we have been a country.  That’s fairly remarkable.
