Lloyd Bentsen, the former four-term U.S. senator who was the 1988 Democratic vice presidential nominee and served as President Bill Clinton's first secretary of the treasury, died yesterday. He was 85. Mr. Bentsen, who had been in ill health since suffering two strokes in 1998, died at his home in Houston, a family spokesman said. In a statement yesterday, President Bush called Mr. Bentsen "a man of great honor and distinction." During his 22 years in the Senate, the tall, courtly millionaire was known for his generally conservative voting record on foreign policy and economic issues while maintaining a more moderate position on many social issues.

WASHINGTON-- --The obvious parallels to the martyred Democratic hero always have provided a powerful subtext to Barack Obama's presidential candidacy. Like John F. Kennedy, Obama is a young, charismatic senator who casts himself as a generational change agent, and as one whose election would break barriers of prejudice that have long compromised American ideals. Until now, those references have been subtle and oblique. But this month, the Obama campaign explicitly laid claim to the Kennedy legacy, bringing in the man who provided much of the poetry for Camelot, Kennedy speechwriter Theodore Sorensen, to vouch for Obama as a worthy heir.

JFK: RECKLESS YOUTH. By Nigel Hamilton. Random House. 898 pages. $30.NIGEL Hamilton strikes two major chords in "JFK: RecklesYouth," the first of three projected volumes on the life of John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Once struck, they echo throughout this insightful biography that covers Kennedy's "rogue years," 1917 to 1946.It's obvious, first, that Mr. Hamilton, a British scholar whose literary reputation rests on a three-volume study of Field Marshal Bernard Montgomery, has a great deal of admiration and affection for Jack Kennedy.

The title, "Jackie Bouvier Kennedy Onassis," suggests a biography of the woman who came to be known as Jackie O. But this two-part CBS miniseries that starts tomorrow night is mainly yet another re-telling of the Kennedy family saga, which has become a November staple of network programming and American life. I'm not sure if television's recitation of the narrative every November is more a matter of commerce or culture. Is it trotted out because November is a sweeps ratings month and the Kennedys are still big box office?

Kennedy.What happened was, the journalist Theodore White was known to be preparing an article for Life magazine on John Kennedy shortly after his assassination. At her request he interviewed Jackie.

MY CONSERVATIVE friend Grump was peering in the window of the bookstore, where the best sellers are displayed. His scowl was even stormier than usual.He suddenly gripped his walking stick like a baseball bat and raised it above his head.I asked him what he intended to do."I'm thinking of smashing this window," he shouted.That's against the law, and you have always been a law-and-order man."True," he said, lowering the stick. "But something should be done. This is slanderous, scurrilous, outrageous and perfidious."

She proved to be an extraordinary woman in most every way.Mrs. Kennedy, most of the time, was not a happy woman in the White House.
