there is something about the Kennedy that is hard to stop to look at .... a diferent magnetism . even today ... you never get used .
and this photo , it seems they're "chating" , nice and easy among all .... wonderful .

i liked the Nixon's too , it is funny , like a caricature of victory .

incredible how people develops personal identification with the mans on power . the sadness and happy photographys are touching .
