> Today the house is used as an education center and museum Do You Want to Learn More? If you are interested in the Kennedys and you want to learn more about their family I highly suggest you read the book, "The Kennedys an American Drama". It is really interesting even if you aren't interested in politics because there is so much more to the family than you think. You will connect with all of the family members and understand how extraordinary they were. The Kennedys have made a lasting impact on our country and still continue to today with the current generation of Kennedys. I hope that you found the Kennedys as interesting as I did, and that this will make you want to learn about them. > Bobby started to question what kind of future his children would have and if he was doing enough for them so that they could be successful, this led to him thinking about running for president
> At first he didn't want to run because of so many people who did not like him and thought he was selfish, but there were polls going around saying that if he would enter he would win and he decided that he had nothing to lose so he entered
> The family came back together to help Bobby as they had for Jack, but his campaign organization wasn't as well organized as Jack's was because there was not someone who was very ambitious like Bobby had been for his brother
> After going through many different states and bonding with people through his speeches Bobby beat out his first competitor Eugene McCarthy, and Bobby finally felt like he was stepping outside of Jacks shadow
> On the night of his first victory statement when he was on his way to a press conference he was shot, and killed This book was written in 1984 and some of the Kennedys were still alive when it was written but in the years since it was released they have died. In my project I state which Kennedys are still alive today whether it was in the book or not.
