Morton Kondracke: Does America Need Another Jack Kemp? says
Jack Kemp, former U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, left a vast legacy of policies that impact the America of today. Through his tireless advocacy of others, “bleeding-heart” politics, and support of supply-side economics, Kemp’s strategies made him “the most important politician of the twentieth century who was not president, certainly the most influential Republican.” Bainbridge-based journalist Morton Kondracke (former White House Bureau Chief of Newsweek) looks at the life of Kemp–from his days as a professional football player to his years as a congressman–to explain why his ideas were so influential, what effect they had on the modern Republican party, and suggest why politics needs someone else with Kemp’s ideologies.
