Telling Quayle that he was no Jack Kennedy was not a cheap shot. If Bentsen had added, ". . . But you are somewhat reminiscent of Spiro Agnew," that might be construed as a cheap shot. NEWTON WINTERS Los Angeles

The behavior of the largely Democratic audience was rude and uncalled for (laughing in derision at Quayle's remarks), including Lloyd Bentsen's sarcastic smiles. If Quayle gained 10 years while campaigning, he must have aged another 10 during the debate. Bentsen has class, wisdom, and maturity, but his remark about Quayle and President Kennedy was downright unnecessary. Quayle was not claiming to be Kennedy, he was simply comparing the amount of political experience between them.
