MONEY TALKS, THE KENNEDY LEGACY WALKS:

Dodd not replacing Kennedy on health panel, aide says (Washington Post, September 9, 2009)

Sen. Christopher J. Dodd (D-Conn.) has decided against succeeding his close friend and mentor, the late Edward M. Kennedy, as chairman of the Senate's health committee, a senior Senate aide said Tuesday. [...]

By remaining chairman of the Senate's banking committee, Dodd will oversee a complex rewrite of the regulations overseeing the financial services industry.


He's a liberal Democrat, so you don't particularly expect honest coverage of the story, but you'd think they'd note that he faces a tough re-election bid and staying where he is helps fill his coffers.
