Senator Ted Kennedy was a champion of affordable healthcare. As Rebecca Sheir reports, Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski hopes his legacy lives on, as the healthcare debate rages on.

Mikulski collaborated with Kennedy to establish an Office of Women's Health at the National Institutes of Health. She praises the late senator's ability to compromise legislatively, without sacrificing principles or ideals... and she urges Congress to do the same.

Mikulski says she will miss Kennedy's wit, verve and friendship.
