First Chapter -- First Paragraph -- Tuesday Intros!
Diane at Bibliophile by the Sea hosts First Chapter, First Paragraph, Tuesday Intros. This week's intro is from Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on the Life with John F. Kennedy:
Jackie when do you think the President first began to think and act seriously about the presidency? When did he begin to see himself, do you suppose, as a possible president?
I think he was probably thinking about it for an awfully long time, long before I even knew, and I say this because I remember the first year we were married, I heard him at the Cape. He was in a room with his father, talking and I came in and they were talking about something -- about the vice presidency. Well, this was just the year after he had been elected a senator.
