I truly was impressed by this man. A decent man who wanted to help those who truly needed it. A man who was truly "colorblind" in the sense that it truly didn't matter to him what ethnicity you were, you were a person first. I wish that there were more Republicans like Mr. Kemp who even though you disagreed on some issues, found more to agree upon. An open minded Republican, wow learn this lesson Republicans. Learn from the life of this great man and maybe you can salvage the soul of your party.
Michel Martin of NPR news wrote an excellent article on Jack Kemp today that is really worth reading.
