Jack Kemp was my kind of conservative. He was a big tent/low taxes Republican who could relate to both the elite and the common man.
Plus he was cool in a way only a quarterback can be.
I wish he had beaten Bush the Elder in the 1988 primary. I wish he had been at the top of the ticket instead of Dole's running mate in 1996. In other words, I wish we were mourning the loss of former President Kemp.
