Ted Sorensen

If we remember the words of John F. Kennedy’s speeches, it’s in large part thanks to Theodore Sorensen.  But Sorensen was far more than just a speechwriter—he in large part shaped the president’s image and legacy, serving as a political strategist and a key adviser. Leonard Lopate spoke to Ted Sorensen a number of times, and you can hear—and see a video of—his 2008 interview.
