Obama pays tribute to John F. Kennedy
Kathleen HennesseyWASHINGTON — President Obama on Wednesday placed a wreath at President Kennedy's grave, marking 50 years since the assassination that helped shape the presidency and every man who has held the office since.
Obama was just 2 years old, a babbling toddler living in Hawaii, when Kennedy was shot. He is the first president with no memory of the moment.
That time and distance have undoubtedly shaped how Obama views the legacy of Kennedy, a figure who would be mythologized in popular culture and turned into a Democratic icon by the time Obama came of age politically.
