Ted Kennedy Healthcare Speech 1978

Who are we and what do we stand for.  Isn’t it time to look long and hard in the mirror?   Let’s not drop the torch.

Please pass this clip around till the cows (pigs) come home:

“Cowardice asks the question, Is it safe? Expediency asks the question, Is it politic? Vanity asks the question, Is it popular? But conscience asks the …question, Is it right?

And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular, but he must take it because his conscience tells him that it is right.”
