RIP Lloyd Bentsen
Former Democratic Senator and VP candidate Lloyd Bentsen has died. He also served as President ClintonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first Secretary of the Treasury, "where he was instrumental in directing the administration's economic policy."
The one thing I will always remember about Lloyd Bentsen is his retort to Dan Quayle during the 1988 vice-presidential debate, when Quayle compared himself to John Kennedy. "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy. I knew Jack Kennedy. Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."
