Teddy's ad for Dodd
Teddy Kennedy cut a 30-second spot for his old friend Chris Dodd, who has been representing him in health care negotiations.
Kennedy, looking strong and fit despite his recent battle with cancer, says, "Quality health care as a fundamental right for all Americans has been the cause of my life, and Chris Dodd has been my closest ally in this fight."
The Massachusetts Democrat recently underwent a new round chemotherapy to deal with a glioma, an often fatal kind of tumor. It's not clear when Kennedy, chairman of the HELP committee, will be able to return to the Capitol to participate in health care talks.
