Ted Sorensen

May 8th was the eighty-fifth birth anniversary of Ted Sorensen, a political strategist and trusted adviser to President Kennedy. He is particularly famous for having drafted the inaugural address in which Kennedy exhorted listeners to “Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country”.  Sorensen also collaborated on the Pulitzer Prize winning book “Profiles in Courage”.  We have his 2008 memoir “Counselor: a life at the edge of history”, as well as “Profiles in Courage” in print and audio.
