Sen. Byrd wants to rename Health Care bill after Kennedy

The Democrats new marketing strategy to pass health care legislation is to name the thing after Sen. Kennedy:

Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.), the only senator to have served longer than the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), mourned his friend Wednesday, saying his "heart and soul weeps."

Byrd said he hoped healthcare reform legislation in the Senate would be renamed in memoriam of Kennedy.

"In his honor and as a tribute to his commitment to his ideals, let us stop the shouting and name calling and have a civilized debate on health care reform which I hope, when legislation has been signed into law, will bear his name for his commitment to insuring the health of every American," Byrd said.

I'm glad to see the Dems are staying classy with the death of Kennedy. It would be so unlike them to turn his funeral into a campaign rally.
