Former President Bill Clinton praised Jack Kemp, who died Saturday, in a statement released on the Web site of the William J. Clinton Foundation:
"America has lost an extraordinary public servant and a fine man. Jack Kemp will always be remembered for his relentless search for new ideas and his genuine concern for the poor and people of color, most of whom he knew would never vote for him. He was a creative conservative with a big heart.
"My condolences to his wife Joanne and the Kemp family. I will miss him very much."
