"Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy."

Lloyd Bentsen gave us perhaps the greatest -- and most deserved -- gotcha moment in the history of televised debates. He was a wonderful public servant as well as a valiant war vet (yes, another decorated Democrat, receiving the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with three Oak Leaf Clusters). May he rest in peace.
