    Summary: 
    John F. Kennedy died almost half a century ago--yet because of his extraordinary promise and untimely death, his star still resonates strongly. On the anniversary of his assassination, political scientist and analyst Larry J. Sabato explores the fascinating and powerful influence he has had over five decades on the media, the general public, and especially on each of his nine presidential successors. Sabato reexamines JFK's assassination using heretofore unseen information, then documents the effect the assassination has had on Americans of every modern generation through an extensive survey. The results paint a portrait of the country a half-century after the killing. Just as significantly, Sabato shows how JFK's presidency has strongly influenced the policies and decisions of every president since.--Excerpted from publisher.
