      About The Book

      In every Democratic political convention since 1956, mutters Fairlie darkly, one Kennedy or another has represented “”not the hope of a few, but a national expectation”” — an expectation of remaking the world in the American moral image, a self-righteous yearning to get the country moving toward its unfulfilled global mission, a sparking of the boundless spirit of Manifest Destiny. Everything about the Kennedys — their style, their rhetoric, their advisers, their policies, their haircuts — was (and still is) cleverly engineered to exploit the so-called “”Politics of Expectation”” which feeds on missile gaps, produces missile crises, promotes Grand Designs, proclaims New Frontiers, creates Peace Corps, and appeals to citizen-sacrifice in the name of the glory of national purpose (“”Ask not what your country can do for you. . .””), all a monstrous charade designed to encourage the people “”to expect too much of their political institutions and of their political leaders.””
