About John F Kennedy

John F Kennedy was no shoe-in for the 1960 Democratic nomination. He faced competition from party favorite Adlai Stevenson, who had twice been the party’s pick, as well ad Lyndon Johnson who hoped to manipulate party leaders to select him. On top of that, he did not have the support of the outgoing president, Harry S Truman. But, his organization was strong enough that he got the nomination on the first ballot and then selected Johnson to be his running mate.
