If Kennedy did not get shot he probably would not of been as much of a hero. Bay of Pigs and Adultery. The Catholic church does not believe in divorce. Some countries had laws against it until they realized the problems it causes. Who remembers Lyndon Johnson or Jimmy Carter real well. It seems like all people that die early are made out to be larger than life heroe's. JFK by being shot was made larger than life. If he lived out his life would not of been made this type of hero. Ted and his DUI and loss of life. Most people would go to jail over that but Massachusetts keep electing him senator. Would he of been President if that did not happen?

Johnson and Carter tried their hands at other legacies, such as the Great Society or Conservation respectivily and failed
As far as politicians being scumbags and re-elected? Try Barry in DC after being filmed smoking crack?
