Was John F. Kennedy a conservative? I get this question a lot, and I have been asked several times to do an episode on JFK. The wait is over. Short answer, yes Kennedy would be a modern “establishment conservative,” but that isn’t saying much. It is, in fact, a criticism. I take on Kennedy the president, if he should have been including in my 9 Presidents book, and other Kennedy family fun in this episode of The Brion McClanahan Show.
