PASSAGE 1
In polls, Kennedy is listed as one of the greatest presidents ever to serve. How is it that a man who barely served 1,000 days and enacted few lasting policies, won no wars and who was never much more popular than his Republican rival, could be perceived as greater than George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson or Ronald Reagan? The answer lies in the most consistent feature of Baby Boomers, their narcissism. The president of the “Me generation” trumps all others, just as their war (Vietnam) is the measuring stick by which all modern wars are
judged and their music (rock n’ roll) continues to dominate the air waves. History be damned; if it didn’t happen between 1960 and 1980, it’s irrelevant. If they didn’t see it on television, it might as well not have happened. JFK was the first president to make effective use of television.
