United States of Trad: Ted Sorensen


It is time for another edition of the United States of Trad. This trad politician hails from the Kennedy crew and although he is not a Kennedy himself he is very near and dear to the family. That man is special counsel Ted Sorensen (1928-2010). Sorensen is not only a renowned speech writer for one of the history’s most famous orators JFK, but he was also a political strategist and the no-man that every good president needs. More importantly to this blog Ted Sorensen embodies the Ivy League look. He had the haircut, the glasses and the suits. He was cool.
