'JOHN F. KENNEDY JR.'Biography
...denied President of the United States !
John F Kennedy Jr.
Born only weeks after his father, President John F Kennedy, was elected president, John F. Kennedy Jr. was the first infant to inhabit the White House since the 1880s.
He became famous in the eyes of the world as the three year old saluting his fatherís coffin after his assassination in 1963, with the press lovingly referring to him as "John-John".
John attended Brown University (against the family tradition of Harvard), graduating in 1983.
Handsome, charismatic and rich, just like his parents, John considered acting, but, under his motherís influence, he attended New York Universityís Law School in the mid 1980s.
He found legal training difficult, failing his examinations twice, with the press calling him 'the hunk who flunked'.
However, in 1988, People Magazine dubbed him 'the sexiest man alive'. Around this time, he was to start dating the actress Daryl Hannah.
After introducing his other uncle, Senator Edward Kennedy, to the Democratic Convention of the same year, many anticipated his own political career.
However, he became a Manhattan district attorney, scoring a 6-strong run of successes between 1989 and 1993.
He then moved into publishing, with his politics magazine George, which carried interviews with, amongst others, Fidel Castro. He was also actively involved in much significant philanthropic work.
In 1996, he married Carolyn Bessette, a Calvin Klein publicist, but, on the 16th July 1999, John died alongside her and her sister in a plane which he was piloting, when it crashed off Martha's Vineyard.
"JFK Jr. was doing everything right. He got his law degree, worked as a prosecutor, started George... I expected sometime in the future he would definitely have gotten into politics," Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah).
Vice President Al Gore canceled several campaign fund-raisers on news of the tragedy, and said, used his appearance, hosting the World Cup champion U.S. women's soccer at the White House, to say,
"If the Kennedy family has stood for any one ideal above all others, it is that each of us, by the work of our own hands and hearts, can make a contribution and a difference. And the achievement that we celebrate with such joy here today is most certainly in that tradition," Gore said.
Unfortunately, politically motivated scavengers like billionaire, Richard Melon Scaife had exhausted more than a full presidential term manipulating every conceivable institution, in effort to exact a de facto coup d'etat to overthrow the Clinton presidency and JFK Jr. was routinely befriended, not for the sake of genuine friendship, but for the malignant purpose of managing what they perceived to be his Liberal influence.
His uncle, Senator Ted Kennedy aptly depicted the loss that was felt on the day he died when he said, "We dared to think, in that other Irish phrase, that this John Kennedy would live to comb gray hair, with his beloved Carolyn by his side. But like his father, he had every gift but length of years."
