(CNN) – To his supporters, Ted Kennedy was "the liberal lion."
"The work begins anew, the hope rises again, and the dream lives on," he said during a rousing speech at the 2008 Democratic National Convention brought the house down.
He passed away exactly one year later.
Now, a tribute is being built to a man who spent four decades of his life in the Senate.
Construction crews are already at work on the Edward M. Kennedy institute in Dorchester, just south of Boston, a 65,000 square-foot facility which will include a full-size replica of the U.S. Senate chamber.
Victoria Kennedy, co-founder the institute, and the widow of the late senator, tells CNN's "The Lead with Jake Tapper" what the institute means to her personally, and what it aims to accomplish.
