    Kemp had the ability to be conservative but not polemic like the current group. I think he was completely wrong on taxes and that has contributed to the mess we are in today but I still fell he was a good guy.

    Outside of the political crap, I still remember him playing for Buffalo.

    R.I.P. Jack. :(

    My dad took my brother and I to see him play back in the 60's when we lived in Buffalo. I still remember that crewcut, which we all had.
    This is how I remember him. I had his card at one time.

    He really did represent everything that was good about the United States. I always thought he'd make a great President. It's a shame we never got the chance to find out.

    While I'm certainly glad he didn't get a chance to put his fiscal policies into action as VPOTUS or POTUS, he was certainly the kind of politician who could disagree without being disagreeable, a trait that is sorely lacking today.
