President John F. Kennedy is one of the most important men to hold the title of POTUS. He offered us the closest thing to American royalty that we saw. It is interesting to reflect on his campaign for president in the current political environment. Gov. Romney and President Obama have run campaigns that are largely not about big ideas like JFK’s New Frontier offered. Romney has run on his ability to manage business and repeal all of the presidents accomplishments especially the so called Obamacare act–while keeping all of the good parts. Obama seems distracted from articulating the accomplishments of his first term. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential bid showed candidates how to run a campaign based on pivotal decisions and a clear vision. Here are some intimate photos of JFK invigorating the public and setting a course toward greatness. Thank God for youth. Thank God for Hip-hop.
Victory at last. After campaigning arduously and actively in all 50 states, Kennedy earned his way into the imagination of the American public.
