From NCLB to Medicare to the current immigration reform bill, Ted Kennedy’s ability (and willingness) to make deals and get things done is legendary. In fact, it was a meeting over NCLB that led in part to the current push on immigration reform, according to the Post article ( here), which also hints at Kennedy’s desire for some additional influence this time around on NCLB. “I’m not trying to be cute with anybody about this. I want to get things done [on] challenging public policy issues that affect real people,” he is quoted as saying in the article.
