Taking Bets: Who Will Be The First Democrat To Invoke Ted Kennedy's Name In Attempt to Pass ObamaCare?

I say Nancy Pelosi.

Any takers?

I think Ann Althouse has it right.

Apparently, ABC News, in their effort to fall over themselves with their lamentations and obits, has already started the race to the bottom:

For Kennedy, the ascension of Obama was an important step toward realizing his goal of health care reform.

At the Democratic National Convention in August 2008, the Massachusetts Democrat promised, I pledge to you that I will be there next January on the floor of the United States Senate when we begin the great test.

Sen. Kennedy made good on that pledge, but ultimately lost his battle with cancer.

Nancy Pelosi has also released a statement:
WASHINGTON (AFP) US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi vowed Wednesday to push through embattled health reform legislation this year following the death of Senator Ted Kennedy, who called the effort "the cause of my life".

"Ted Kennedy's dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration," Pelosi said in a statement.
Mary Jo was not available to comment on the health care legislation Pelosi was referring to.
