As a 12 year old I worked at the local level for JFK's campaign, I also supported Bobby Kennedy's presidential bid and worked in 5 of Ted Kennedy's,including his presidential bid. My parents knew JFK, a family friend was his first biographer,and Ihave known many of the Kennedy assistants and friends:Kenny O'Donnell,Dave Powers ,Bill Sutton, and Kennedy's friend and fellow hero from the PT 109,George"Barney" Ross. That being said I must recall theat Billy Sutton is quoted many times ,as stating that JFK ran as a conservative in his initial campaign. And a close look at his views show him to be. However,JFK was not a conservative in todays meaning,and he is DEFINITELY not of the OBAMA Liberal persuasion. First of all he was not mentored by AMERICA haters like Frank Marshall Davis,Rev. Wright,or Bill Ayers. I might as well add his mom to that as she hated this country too. It should be mentioned that JFK said several times that liberals made his skin crawl.In my opinion,JFK was a pragmatic centrist idealist. I call myself a JFK Democrat because I believe that he and his brother Bobby represented the most beneficial thinking for this country. Not locked in ideology and not trying to build divisions in this country. President Obama,Eric Holder on one side and the Republican leadership on the other are doing just that.
