A somewhat belated note on the passing of Ted Sorensen. Sorensen once came to speak at a speechwriting class I attended at George Washington University in the mid-1990s. We began the class by watching John Kennedy's inaugural address. Then Sorensen spoke, saying that he was apologizing in advance for not sounding as eloquent as President Kennedy: "He had a better speechwriter than I have."
Who wrote JFK Kennedy's inaugural speech then?
