Former VP and GOP Congressman Jack Kemp dies after a long battle with cancer. Via AP:
Jack Kemp, the ex-quarterback, congressman, one-time vice-presidential nominee and self-described "bleeding-heart conservative" died Saturday.
"Pro football gave me a good perspective. When I entered the political arena, I had already been booed, cheered, cut, sold, traded, and hung in effigy."
Kemp had the political game down pat. This is one of my favorite quotes of his. I honestly think the man could have been president in '96... had he been at the top of the ticket.
God rest his soul... and prayers to the Kemp family.
