God help us

Apparently Barack Obama will be delivering a eulogy (which aren't supposed to happen at Catholic Masses, but always do) at the funeral of Ted Kennedy.

Cardinal O'Malley?

I know one good Catholic priest who, when asked about a eulogy, has them take place either at a wake or vigil service before the funeral Mass (and away from the Church) or at the graveside after the completion of the Committal. This seems to me an imminently pastoral way of handling these requests without violating the Church's prohibition. Why could this not happen in Senator Kenndy's case? I can't imaging a better setting for a televised eulogy than Arlington National Cemetery.
