Quote of the Day (Jack Kemp, on Football and Politics)

“Pro football gave me a good sense of perspective to enter politics: I’d already been booed, cheered, cut, sold, traded and hung in effigy.”—Jack Kemp (1935-2009), replying to a question in his first Congressional race in 1970 on how football prepared him for politics, quoted in Adam Clymer, “Jack Kemp, Star on Field and in Politics, Dies at 73,” The New York Times, May 3, 2009
