"Mr. Bush, who personally selected the senator for the award..." (source: Dallas Morning News article linked above by DrewsDad)
I stand corrected. And disappointed in GHW Bush's judgement.

I was actually very upset that my university would be involved in honoring the likes of Ted Kennedy so I called the University about this a couple of weeks ago and was referred to the Bush Foundation, where I spoke to another fellow Aggie. He told me that GHWB had personally selected Teddy boy prior to TK's most ascerbic remarks about W, and that GHWB decided to go ahead with the award after the remarks. While I wouldn't have gone ahead and honored the schmuck, I feel I have to respect (but not agree with) GHWB's decision.
