I liked Lloyd, he has always been an interesting character down here in Texas. One of the few politicians who not only was affable but at least appeared to have some semblance of character. Great guy and he will definitely be missed here in the Lone Star State.

Quoting Pope (Reply 11): Ronnie's line about not making his opponent's youth and inexperience an issue when asked about the "age" issue during his debate was right up there.
I think his line was "And I will not hold the inexperience and youth of my opponent against him." And Reagan was so engaging and always had that twinkle in his eye, that even Mondale had to laugh. But Walter wasn't mad, he obviously thought it was great.
I think that trumped Bensten's line, simply because it was delievered in a jovial manner.
just wondered, and checked up media in the U.K., Ireland, France, Germany, and Switzerland and can say that it is a "no-news" here. Whenever I remember Bentsen as a nice man, I have to tell you that he was/is not well known outside the USA.
