JFK in the Senate: Pathway to the Presidency by John T. ShawBefore John F. Kennedy became a legendary young president he was the junior senator from Massachusetts. The Senate was where JFKs presidential ambitions were born and first realized. In the first book to deal exclusively with JFKs Senate years, author John T. Shaw looks at how the young Senator was able to catapult himself on the national stage. Tip ONeill once quipped that Kennedy received more publicity for less accomplishment than anyone in Congress. But ONeill didnt understand that Kennedy saw a different path to congressional influence and ultimately the presidency. Unlike Lyndon Johnson, the Democratic leader in the Senate, JFK never aspired to be The Master of the Senate who made deals and kept the institution under his control. Instead, he envisioned himself as a Historian-Scholar-Statesman in the mold of his hero Winston Churchill which he realized with the 1957 publication of Profiles of Courage that earned JFK a Pulitzer Prize and public limelight. Smart, dashing, irreverent and literary, the press could not get enough of him. Yet, largely overlooked has been Kennedys tenure on a special Senate committee to identify the five greatest senators in American history—JFKs work on this special panel coalesced his relationships in Congress, and helped catapult him toward the presidency. Based on primary documents from JFKs Senate years as well as memoirs, oral histories, and interviews with his top aides, JFK in the Senate provides new insight into an underappreciated aspect of his political career.

I signed on to The Knot. I first started by inputting the guest list which disappeared by the time I signed in a second time. The wedding itself needed no real planning; just a place to input the guest list. This site is a SCAM. Once you sign up they stop caring about you. I offer on site wedding hair and makeup and pay a pretty penny to advertise on their base level. But the customer service is dramatically different.
