“And I caught up to him [John F. Kennedy] in the capitol and, oh, I was just so proud of him. And there's a picture where I have my hand on his chin and, you know, he's just looking at me and there really were tears in his eyes. And suddenly a flash came, cos I didn't think there was anyone there, and then the papers had said 'Wife Chucks Him Under Chin.' I mean that was so much more emotional than any kiss. Because his eyes really did fill with tears. Just saying, 'Oh, Jack' you know, 'What a day.'”
