First Lady Fascination

People magazine put Jackie Kennedy on the cover of its issue this week, demonstrating her lasting star power. The magazine spoke to her closest aides, who shared details about her grief following the assassination. Fascination with the former first lady has been consistent through the past five decades, especially interest in her private thoughts. In 2011, for example, tapes were released of Jackie discussing her strong opinions about her contemporaries, including Martin Luther King Jr., sister-in-law Eunice Kennedy Shriver, and French leader Charles de Gualle, to much interest.
