There's a unique method of term limits incorporated by the founding fathers into the Constitution - and in every state constitution - they're called ELECTIONS. Byrd - like him or not - was the selection of the people of W. Virginia over and over. Who better to decide than voters?
After more checking there were at least 50 buildings bridges streets, ect named after him. He went from being involved in the KKK to being one of the first to endorse President Obama. Love him or hate him he still has done a lot for our state. Probably more than any other senator..
