I'm witcha, A. I really admire Senator Byrd's guts as his collection of red vests as well.

Senator Byrd is the best example of redemption I know of. He is a man who started his political career on the wrong side of many issues, but never once stopped learning and changing, until today he is on the right side of history on virtually everything. I'm just sorry he is not immortal.

Sen. Byrd is indeed to be admired. He opened his mind, made the effort to learn about people, issues, culture and society and changed his views as he did and he shows us that changing views is not always flip-flopping.

thanks. i couldn't understand what he said on tape. his voice was clear tho. AYE!

what hoppy said. Byrd shouldn't be considered such an iconoclast because "in the real world" humans err and fail and change and are redeemed by their right intentions all the time. It's one of the things humans do best actually. And he's a great example of it.

Let's hope he keeps on going through the energy fight

In your face, Tom Coburn! And all the other cretins that were praying for his demise! Merry Christmas, assholes -- this one was for Teddy! Now, let's hope that wheel of Karma starts turning on those who were praying for bad juju. I hope Byrd sticks around for as long as he wants!

i regret i didn't look past his awful pale blue suit when he was majority leader.
