Keeping it in the family: new book asserts RFK-Jackie affair

The New York Post today previews a soon-to-be released book entitled Bobbie and Jackie: A Love Story. Hat tip to Jason Barnes and the NewsMax news roundup. Author C. David Heymann, who has spent decades researching the book, writes that Jackie Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy began the affair after President John F. Kennedy‘s assasination. Robert was married to his wife, Ethel Kennedy.

If the book’s basic contention is true, it further tarnishes the Kennedy mystique. This is a family that is not and was not ever perfect – quite nearly the opposite, in some respects, as infidelity now seems to have been rampant. While glamour reigned on the surface with the help of the media, the Kennedy days were never truly  Camelot.
