Kennedy wasn't that bad

He was one of the few presidents who wouldn't let the military run the show since World War II.

Chuck Hagel is rumored to have said to Obama that the military industrial complex has been running the country since the early 90s. While George Bush senior ran the show, he actually WAS the military industrial complex, so that doesn't really count.

Kennedy, Eisenhower and Reagan are probably the only 3 presidents to stay independent of the military industrial complex.

Kennedy wasn't a perfect president by far, but compared to anything we've had in the last 70 years he wasn't half bad.
