3. "America is over now."

This is why I have always believed that 1968 was a milestone year. Maybe the most important in post-war America.

See, when McCarthy first announced he was going to run, King's advisors asked him to endorse Eugene McCarthy. King replied that he would not right now. He wanted to see what RFK was going to do. Since he thought that RFK would make a great president. When RFK entered, he predicted that he would win the nomination.

Then, of course, they were both assassinated. And that was it. As the great French playwright Jean Genet said, "America is over now." And it was.

What Talbot's book does is it shows that, in addition to Vietnam, RFK's hidden interest in reopening the JFK case was a likely reason for his assassination.
