Ted Sorensen 1928-2010

Ted was best known for being speech writer for JFK, and coining some of the most iconic phrases in American politics. He kindly took time out earlier this year to chat to us about his career and thoughts on modern politics, and also choose a page of words for us to discuss on Words Fail Me.
