Edward Kennedy

Una de las figuras más destacadas del Partido Demócrata y miembro de una de las familias políticas más importantes del siglo XX en Estados Unidos, falleció a los 77 años como consecuencia de un tumor cerebral contra el que luchó en sus últimos años de vida. Fue hermano de del presidente John Kennedy.

Edward Kennedy falleció a los 77 años a causa de un cáncer. El dirigente era conocido como Ted o Teddy y se había convertido en el principal referente de la influyente familia en el Partido Demócrata desde el homicidio del mandatario.

«Hemos perdido al centro irreemplazable de nuestra familia y una luz de dicha en nuestras vidas, pero la inspiración de su fe, optimismo y perseverancia vivirá en nuestro corazones para siempre», señaló la familia en el comunicado,dijo la agencia alemana DPA.

Ted Kennedy murió antes de ver realizada su larga batalla por una reforma del sistema de salud.

Su ausencia de los actuales debates impulsados por el presidente Barack Obama fue sentida tanto por sus compañeros demócratas como por los republicanos, con quienes a lo largo de su carrera había llegado a muchos compromisos.

En mayo de 2008 le habían diagnosticado un tumor cerebral muy grave.

Fue operado y sometido a quimioterapia, y durante la ceremonia de asunción de Obama en enero sufrió un desmayo y fue trasladado al hospital temporalmente.

Ted Kennedy fue senador durante 46 años, uno de los legisladores de mandato más largo del país, contaba con una fama de persona liberal y de luchador contra la discriminación racial y a favor de la igualdad de oportunidades.

«Él amaba a este país y dedicó su vida a servirlo», comentó asimismo el comunicado de la familia.

«Siempre creyó que nuestros mejores días estaban por delante, pero es difícil imaginarlos sin él».

Las aspiraciones de Edward Kennedy de llegar a la Casa Blanca tras el asesinato de John en 1963 y de Robert en 1968 se vieron truncadas en 1969 por un accidente automovilístico en el que murió una mujer que iba con él en el coche, que cayó a un río.
