JFK: No. At the time. I mean, that day it did.
Cannon: What do you do, what did you say to yourself, when it happened?
JFK: I was disappointed that day, and I was damn tired, and we came awfully close, and then we lost. By twenty-eight votes or something. And I was disappointed.
Cannon: What did you do, go back to the hotel and go to sleep? Or have a drink?
JFK: No, I think we went to have dinner with Eunice, didn’t we, Jackie? And then we went back afterwards.
Jacqueline Kennedy: You know for five days in Chicago, Jack really hadn’t gone to bed. Nobody had. Except for two hours sleep a night. It just was this incredible . . . brutal thing. You don’t see how any men are that strong to stay up for five days and talk and talk . . .
Bradlee: Do you remember wanting to go into politics?
Cannon: Not really, no.
JFK: And here you are, around these history makers, in Washington. Do you ever think you’d rather be a politician than reporting?
