    “I entered public life with a young President who inspired a generation and the world.It gives me great hope as I leave, another young President inspires another generation and once more on America’s behalf inspires the entire world.” And damn, I am crying again. How bittersweet,this letter is beautiful. RIP Teddy!

    BREAKING LL WEDDING NEWS: I may have found a venue.

    The Culver Hotel in Culver City is leading the running. Cool space, can accommodate both ceremony and cocktail reception, and very much not pricey.

    I cried as I read this letter. So much emotion this week. I can just hear him going after those Repubs. His would not be a quiet voice for this President. Teddy is missed.

      yes, Senator Teddy Kennedy would have gone to the mat to defend PBO against all the garbage the republicans have thrown at him.

      Oh, how I miss him

        Senator Kennedy was such high profile, he always attracted the media’s attention. What tremendous help he could have been for the president. NO WAY the media would have been able to ignore the voice of Senator Kennedy. Just imagine how he would have denounced the obstructionism over and over again and would have forced the media to tell the truth.

    Six decades ago, the US and Saudi Arabia had an uneasy relationship based on oil and regional security, but a secret trip by President Truman’s personal physician to treat the Saudi monarch drew them closer together.

    In February 1950, the US ambassador in Saudi Arabia sent an unlikely and unusual request to the State Department.

    I’ve not seen that letter before – how absolutely heartwarming – surely pride of place in the library

    LL…….I’m late, but my congratulations are deep and sincere. I am so happy for you and Teresa, and love it that you are doing the organizing. We all work to our strengths, and this is obviously yours. Who ever thought you two would operate according to old-fashioned gender stereotypes? That’s not you…….you break the mold. We are just ecstatic for you.
