senator edward m. kennedy

I have spoken of Senator Ted Kennedy many times in the past. While my family was on holiday in Maine after my college graduation, we met the Senator and his family. I approached him, seeking advice on getting into the Kennedy School. My parents wanted me to go there to earn my MPP. During the course of the conversation, I asked the senator for the opportunity to work in his office instead. Two weeks later I was on the Hill assisting his speechwriter! Some of my favorite days were when the senator's dog would run around the office entertaining everyone with tricks. Working in his office was the best experience of my life.
