April 1961Ted Kennedy with Ed Gagnon & familytaken by Jim Corcoran
His seven weeks spent in Wisconsin helped his brother win the first contested primary of the season there, and similar time spent in Wyoming was rewarded when a unanimous vote from that state's delegates put his brother over the top at the 1960 Democratic National Convention.
Teddy was flawed, as the right-wingers keep pointing out. But I'm pretty sure he really cared about people. Why else would he work as a Senator when he had family money, and why else would he fight for things like universal health care, instead of enriching corporations and giving his family tax cuts.
