FILE - In this June 27, 1953 file photo, Sen. John F. Kennedy, D-Mass., and his fiancee, Jacqueline Bouvier, prepare a sailfish boat for sailing at Hyannis, Mass. The Kennedy image, the "mystique" that attracts tourists and historians alike, did not begin with his presidency and is in no danger of ending 50 years after his death. Its journey has been uneven, but resilient _ a young and still-evolving politician whose name was sanctified by his assassination, upended by discoveries of womanizing, hidden health problems and political intrigue, and forgiven in numerous polls that place JFK among the most beloved of former presidents.
