Quote of the Day

"Disillusioned American citizens today are filled with cynicism and mistrust about presidential politics; most young people today assume that all modern presidents have deceived or disappointed the American people. Perhaps it is worth reminding them that it is possible to have a president who is honest, idealistic, and devoted to the best values of this country. It happened at least once--I was there."
(From the preface to Ted Sorensen's recently published memoir, Counselor: A Life at the Edge of History. Sorensen served as special counsel and adviser in the administration of John F. Kennedy, most notably as Kennedy's speech writer, and served for a short time in the early days of the Johnson administration.)
