8. He was always a Republican with the one exception of supporting Kennedy
He and the Kennedy's were very close friends which may have been the reason for his one defection from the Republican Party.

6. Perry Como is a lifelong Republican.
Maybe you should change your headline to read "Robert Kennedy poses with celebrities".

11. Cary Grant would no doubt rather you called him a friend of the Kennedy's
Edited on Thu May-26-11 03:25 PM by Lone_Star_Dem
He had a very strict rule about separating politics and Hollywood stars. To my knowledge he never once admitted to supporting a candidate. He came close with Reagan when he introduced Nancy at the R's National Convention. Still, I don't think he ever came out and endorsed him.

I do find it fascinating how many famous people the Kennedy's were able to draw to their side. Especially the ones who would have normally been supporting the Republican candidate.
