JFK

John F. Kennedy was a fallible human being, like the rest of us. He did more good than bad. A lot more good than bad – 90 % good/ 10% bad – if you ask a presidential historian. Marilyn Monroe sang “Happy Birthday” to JFK, while he was sitting with his wife, Jackie. Frank Sinatra also campaigned with the Kennedys: a family that possessed celebrity status and attracted other celebrities. The administration knighted by somebody as “Camelot” – which kind of sucked for the cuckolded King in the story – spun its own romantic dramas and possibilities of infidelities…which, in the Washington, D.C. version, kind of sucked for the First Lady.
