Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act
Now that Obama has signed the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, I can't help but recall how fortunate I was last spring to watch Senator Kennedy advocate on behalf of the legislation on the floor. His conviction was so pronounced I wondered if I could ever speak like that without feeling embarrassed or uncomfortable (I sure hope so). There really is nothing like seeing a white affluent male perform a passionate monologue on behalf of minority rights. It's sad to think he probably will not take the floor like that again.
