Totenberg: Kennedy a 'Truly Shakespearean Figure' Redeemed by 'Greatness'

In full swoon for the late Senator Ted Kennedy, NPR's Nina Totenberg fondly recalled his "greatness" in doing "enormous things" for "millions and millions." She predicted on the weekly Inside Washington aired Friday night:

I think he'll be remembered as a truly Shakespearean figure: tragic, flawed; who in the end achieved redemption through greatness - both in his personal life and in his professional life, and did enormous things for millions and millions of people.

(Inside Washington, produced by Washington, DC's ABC affiliate, first airs Friday night on DC's PBS station.)
