Minnesota Senator Amy Klobucher says Senator Ted Kennedy's passion for a cause and his country, and his love for the Senate made her want to "go to work every day."
Kennedy has died at the age of 77 from brain cancer. Klobuchar, a fellow Democrat, remembers Kennedy's advice when she was first elected to the Senate:
"Work with people on the other side of the isle," she said. Get to know them. And people wouldn't think that. Immediately, when you think of Ted Kennedy, the liberal lion, you think of him as partisan, standing up for his causes. But he had this bi-partisan pragmatism that really moved legislation in the Senate."
Klobuchar says she values the two years she served with Kennedy, who she looked up to as a mentor. She says Kennedy liked to tell stories about his former friend and rival, the late Minnesota Senator Hubert Humphrey.
