8. Maybe Kerry should do like Alf Landon and let the kids
run for office. Sometimes it works out better that way.

Alf Landon, father of Senator Nancy Landon Kassebaum, an excellent senator from Kansas back when I was still voting republican and republicans were still sane.

Unlike Dole, I never regretted voting for her.
Kassebaum-Baker, Nancy Landon

1932-, U.S. senator from Kansas (1979-97), b. Topeka, Kans. A Republican and the daughter of Kansas governor Alfred Mossman (Alf) Landon , she was the first woman who had not entered politics as the widow of a congressman to be elected to the Senate. Kassebaum was an early proponent of term limits, supported abortion rights and gun control, and became chairwoman of the Labor and Human Resources Committee in 1995. She married Howard Baker in 1996.
