Jackie O should get the credit for re-working the public's perception of JFK.
I honestly think sympathy for his death, the fact that he was young, rich with all the trappings, had young children, ...pictures of him in sailboats... I honestly think this and Jackie's immortal flame, and Camelot stuff did the trick.
We're lucky he didn't get us all blown up. (Thank you, RFK.)
dys. I appreciated your comments about Nixon. I thought no one would think I was sincere, so I kept it to myself. I do think Nixon had at least one very loose
screw, but absent Watergate, which was tame compared to modern scandals, Nixon was sharp and had some stellar acheivements.
Definitely paranoid. (But, they really were
all out to get him, weren't they???
