A Nelson Mandela backstory: Iowa’s Senator Dick Clark

A Nelson Mandela backstory: Iowa’s Senator Dick Clark | Political Consulting . . . all things political | Scoop.it
Dick Clark was Mandela when Mandela wasn’t cool. A one-term Democratic senator from Iowa and for years afterward a leader of congressional discussions on apartheid, Clark is now 85 and long gone from the public scene.
Ken Feltman's insight:

I knew Dick Clark. I held meetings with him and Iowa business leaders on key legislation. Clark was forthright, helpful whenever he could be, always ready with a joke that made a point, candid and concerned.

 

Dick, you did not deserve this.
