Ted gets angry about the minimum wage

During my graduate studies at SAIS, senator Ted Kennedy came to speak at our school right by Dupont Circle in Washington DC. His speech was mostly about international issues, this was right after 9/11, and I remember he talked about how his brother (JFK) went with trustworthy evidence to the UN before the Cuban Missile crises (implying that Bush should do the same before thinking about Iraq...). To a student of international relations, that was wings of history, but when he left I tried to say a brief hello and I remember I thought he looked old and tired (and very ”heavy”).

Not so anymore. Just watched this clip on YouTube [thanks TH] and Ted can still get angry.
