The longtime Democratic senator from Massachusetts will be mourned on 'every continent,' said British Prime Minister Gordon Brown on Wednesday.
For decades, most major pieces of social legislation – from healthcare to immigration to education – bore the imprint of Sen. Edward 'Ted' Kennedy, who died late Tuesday.

Sen. Edward Kennedy had his share of verbal gaffes – some of them costly – but he will also be remembered as an impassioned orator.
Massachusetts legislators are deciding whether to change the law to allow the governor to appoint a temporary replacement.
