JFK's Top 5 Political Accomplishments

Friday marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination that devastated the country and robbed Americans of a charismatic and inspirational leader.

As the youngest man ever to be elected president at the age of 43, Kennedy represented a new future and hope for the nation. "Let the word go forth from this time and place, to friend and foe alike, that the torch has been passed to a new generation of Americans," Kennedy declared in his 1961 inaugural address. While his presidency lasted only 34 months, his political accomplishments helped cement his legacy as a great president.
