Per Vidal, “during Jack’s thousand days as president, he discussed” this person “almost as much as he did Khrushchev, and in much the same manner.” Whom did Kennedy believe to be the moral equivalent of Nikita Khrushchev?
- His wife’s official couturier, Oleg Cassini.
- His wife’s decorator, Sister Parish.
- His wife’s hairdresser, Kenneth.
- His wife’s mother, Janet Auchincloss.
