Just a week away from the 50th anniversary of the election of John F. Kennedy, Kennedy adviser, speechwriter, and close confidante Ted Sorensen has been struck by another stroke.
I don’t know the prognosis as of yet — but close associates of Ted’s are keeping TWN informed.
Sorensen has been a guest blogger at The Washington Note and has become a personal friend over the years. Despite impairments after a massive stroke some years ago, Sorensen continued to think, write, spoke at and attended conferences. One of his impressive proteges, among many, is White House speechwriter Adam Frankel.
Our sincerest wishes for recovery go to Ted who has done so much to constantly remind Americans of what leadership should look like and what the responsibilities of our elected leaders to the nation are.
