A salute to JFK

Capitol Hill paid tribute to President Kennedy today on this, the 50th anniversary of his inauguration.  House Speaker John Boehner said, "sadly, this is the first congress to convene without a Kennedy since the Truman administration."  He looked over at JFK's daughter and said, "Caroline, there's still time."
