Question 1:

Senator Ted Kennedy's Irish inherent eloquence made him a powerful orator, none more so than when he delivered these words "need not be idealized, or enlarged in death beyond what he was in life; to be remembered simply as a good and decent man, who saw wrong and tried to right it, saw suffering and tried to heal it, saw war and tried to stop it."

Ted Kennedy was approached by the Green Bay Packers to play professional football.

Question 4:

From the floor of the Senate, Ted Kennedy described this man's America as one in which "women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rouge police could break down citizens' doors in midnight raids......the doors of the Federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens."
