Lloyd Bentsen Dead at 85

Bill Clinton's former Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen died earlier today at the age of 85. He was also a former senator (from 1970-1993 when he was tapped for the job of treasury secretary), and he ran unsuccessfully for vice president in 1988. He was a Texan Democrat, and they loved him. Those who did not love him, at least they respected him.

Here at the Knickerbocker News, our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and loved ones who have suffered this great loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. You have much to proud of and remember. God bless him, and may he now rest in peace.
