Two things have happened recently that may signify the last gasp of 1960's liberalism. The last Kennedy brother has died and Obamacare has all but died on the operating table. Could these two events signal that we are finally free from the ridiculous influence of the 1960's hippy movement? Have we finally rid ourselves of the illusion that a radical utopia can exist where flower power and socialist ideals can defeat terrorism and create prosperity?

The death of Senator Edward Kennedy (D-Massachusetts) takes the senatorial succession law of Massachusetts out of the hypothetical. Last week Senator Kennedy petitioned Governor Deval Patrick (D) to change state law to allow a speedy replacement for him. Current law requires a special election be held within five months.
