Rename Health Care Bill for Kennedy

You know this kind of irks me.

Sen. Byrd backed by Pelosi have suggested to renaming the Health Care bill in whatever form it takes for Sen. Ted Kennedy.

Does this really mean they are trying to honor the man or is there some political playing going on here?

Excuse me for being cynical but I'm feeling the latter. Political playing.

Is it a play to twist the arms of the Blue-Dog Democrats into voting for a bill named after there fearless leader of Congress?

'If you're a real Dem you can't vote against a bill named after a member as prominent as Ted Kennedy!'

Or if you're on the other side how about 'A vote against the HC bill is a vote against Camelot!'

It just smells funny..

Byrd: Rename health care bill for Kennedy

Ailing Senator Robert Byrd, one of only two to have served longer than Kennedy, suggests in an emotional statement renaming the pending health care legislation for the late Massachusetts Senator:

In his honor and as a tribute to his commitment to his ideals, let us stop the shouting and name calling and have a civilized debate on health care reform which I hope, when legislation has been signed into law, will bear his name for his commitment to insuring the health of every American.
