Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy, delivers remarks, Jan. 20, 2011, in front of Vice President Joe Biden, left to right, US Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry during a ceremony in honor of the 50th anniversary of the Inaugural address of President Kennedy, in the Capitol Rotunda on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C.

His legacy has been, and probably will be, debated for years. One thing is clear. America is still fascinated with him and his family.
