Kennedy Began Immigration Push At NCLB White House Meeting

From NCLB to Medicare to the current immigration reform bill, Ted Kennedy's ability (and willingness) to make deals and get things done is legendary. In fact, it was a meeting over NCLB that led in part to the current push on immigration reform, according to the Post article ( here), which also hints at Kennedy's desire for some additional influence this time around on NCLB. "I'm not trying to be cute with anybody about this. I want to get things done [on] challenging public policy issues that affect real people," he is quoted as saying in the article.
