If you hear a memorable line post it with candidate's name and approx time.

Lloyd Bentsen 1988> Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy, I knew Jack Kennedy, Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you are no Jack Kennedy. (referring to R-Dan Quayle)

when asked about his age (73) and whether that was too old to be President.

A line like this may come in handy for a number of our candidate.

"I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience," Ronald Reagan quipped during the 1984 presidential debates when asked if, at 73, he is too old to be President. The line — a classic example of Reagan's sense of humor — even solicited a laugh from Democratic opponent Walter Mondale.
