Real Politicians of 1963

It is worth mentioning, I think, that historians now do not question that John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson, and, yes, Martin L. King Jr. had very active and extensive sex lives outside wedlock, probably a good deal more extensive than the potential First Gentleman spouse of a U.S. Presidential candidate. I don't fault any of them for it. Certainly, Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Johnson seemed to be aware, and may have had their own activities. Mrs. King was aware, less happy, but tolerant. As I've written earlier, some very great historical figures compartmented their lives.
