About a week after president John F.Kennedy was assassinated Jackie Kennedy (his wife) coined the phrase "The Days of Camelot" to describe JFK's 1000 days in office.Even though color TV's were already invented (circa 1953) most Americans couldn't afford them.Most people enjoyed watching television shows in black and white. Coca Cola was still sold in little green bottles and rumors that it contained actual cocaine were still new.The game LIFE was a popular.The object was to get married, settle down and raise a big family (in that order).America was still predominantly white so advertisers catered to white middle class families.Image was everything and JFK was packaged as an American folk hero.Media coverage of the day stayed away from gossip and journalism stuck to a strict code of morals and ethics.Lots of rumors of infidelity have come out about the exploits of JFK since then.With that said do you think JFK would be thought as a great American president if he had gone on to serve out two full terms as president?
