    JFK had the "IT" factor.

    It appears Obama wasn't the first to send a thrill up the Matthews leg.

    LBJ fell into the trap of "if we only had a few more troops on the ground we could win this thing". Over and over he authorized more troops thinking victory was achievable.

    Would JFK have done the same? We don't know. The military advisors would have been the same. The advice would have been the same

    Would he have walked away and taken the taunts that he was soft on Communism?

    I don't think so

    Not with regard to tax policy he wasn't. FDR steadily increase federal tax rates. JFK lowered them dramatically.
