I vaguely remember coming home from my primary school ( Sacred Heart ) and the TV was on in our lounge with just a picture of JFK on the screen and some morbid music playing.
Frank Sinatra was a family friend of the Kennedy's and was asked to use his influence with his Mafia connections to rig votes through the Mafia's strong union connections.
With a little help from a rogue element within the CIA - it was the Mafia that later went on and killed JFK and his brother Bobby Kennedy because the Kennedy brothers doubled crossed them after they helped get JFK elected.
JFK made his brother Bobby Attorney General of the United States and he immediately went after the Mafia's top wise-guys and the Mafia in turn feeling double crossed whacked them!?
They had talent and didn't bonk Monroe. Do not upset this thread with realism lol
The Cronkite focus (narrated by Clooney) is a very good watch tonight, but the rest - it never ceases to amaze me that somebody who could've been good is considered great just because he never had chance to fail, but at the same time his failings are ignored because he's meant to be angelic in Presidential terms?
He did a lot of good and also offset that with other things, but again there's no balance.
The human race really does like an unachieveable dream doesn't it.
