352. Yes, obviously
it was the same general crowd who were the predecessors of the Cheney/Rumsfeld foreign policy of today. They are the people who got Bush 2 into office to continue their foreign policy agenda. So the fact that Kennedy chose to carry out their agenda, at least in that case, doesn't make me more impressed by him. Not to mention that most of the domestic accomplishments people associate with Kennedy were actually passed by LBJ. I really can't go along with the JFK hero worship.
