156. Liberal OIF Vet, I've watched that film scores of times and every single time I came away with
the distinct impression that Jackie Kennedy was trying her damndest to GET OUT of the line of fire. I've heard people say she was trying to help the SS guy get into the car and now you're saying she was reaching on the trunk for JFK's skull and brains. Now that is THE most far-fetched version yet.

The President and the Governor of Texas have just been shot methodically and within seconds of each other. Jackie did what many people would have done. She tried to save herself. No dishonor in that, of course. But we Americans can't have our First Ladies doing something as commonplace as being scared shitless they're going to be the next one shot. Instead, she has to become the dutiful wife helping the SS agent--who actually pushed her back into the limo.
