4. and John Lewis

that is a treat. Two of these fine gentlemen make my list of people who make me proud to be from GA. Not all the time am I proud but there are moments.

5. I've always loved this picture.

Kind of a "passing of the torch". Even if neither of them knew it at the time.

10. Someday, some middle-aged man or woman will hang a similar photo in the Oval Office...

...of themself when young, shaking the hand of Barack Obama. Yes they will. Yes we can.

11. I hope so

And I bet that young person will have that same look as young Bill -- a deep appreciation of the moment and a fierce determination to do what he or she can for their country.

13. I only got half of two presidents in those days

I was 11 years old, and my dad, who knew Pierre Salinger, JFK's press secretary, got JFK to inscribe this to me for my 11th birthday. Just in time. I lived to see my birthday the following year. JFK did not.

I still keep it in the original frame it was in when my dad gave it to me that day in March, 1963.

16. One of my prize possessions, no question.

I have the usual photos of me and Clinton, me and Obama, and age 11, there wouldn't have been a whole hell of a lot I would have known to say to a president JFK anyway. But even so, not a hell of a lot normal mortals left that can boast one of these in their living room!

My dad and Bobby, Sr. got to be fairly close a few years later, but he never really got to know JFK. One of our family friends (and close colleague of my father), on the other hand, knew JFK really well, and I REALLY regret not pumping her for more stories. My brother and I used to go out to dinner with her at least twice a year right up until she passed away at age 93 (4 years ago). She was tiny, but terrorized all presidents from JFK to Obama at press briefings. Bush Jr. feared her more than he feared the Taliban.

17. I can't claim to have done anything exceptional to get this

Just the right dad at the right time.
