The Senate Monday voted to name its most famous hearing room after the late Kennedy trio of brothers, honoring the political greats with a permanent place in the center of American government.

The gilded caucus room in the Russell Senate Office Building will be rennamed the Kennedy Caucus Room under a resolution, which passed Monday with virtually no dissentors.
