Sen. Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., laughs ahead of the inauguration for Barack Obama.

Sen. Edward Moore Kennedy, the Liberal lion of the Senate has died, he was 77 years old.

The ailing Senator had been absent from the health care fight due to his own health battle. He was diagnosed with brain cancer in May of 2008.

The Kennedy family said Kennedy died at his home in Hyannis Por, Mass.

For nearly half a century, Sen. Edward Kennedy has guarded his family's political legacy. Stricken with cancer and as Congress takes up his signature issue, he is tending to his own. Kennedy asked Massachusetts lawmakers to change state law to give Gov. Deval Patrick, a fellow Democrat and supporter of President Barack Obama, the ability to appoint an interim replacement to Kennedy's seat should Kennedy be unable to continue serving.

"It is vital for this Commonwealth to have two voices speaking for the needs of its citizens and two votes in the Senate during the approximately five months between a vacancy and an election," Kennedy said in a letter to Patrick.
