Just how much is Michelle Obama like Jacqueline Kennedy, and is the First Lady-wannabe from Illinois deliberately patterning her public appearance on the Queen of Compare-alot? This video below is a funny look at the comparison, with a little bit of 1960s bubblegum TV music thrown in.
This blog's Kennedy Watch has compared JFK and Barack plenty of times. (Indeed, the new introduction to the newly-reissued "The Kennedys; America's Emerald Kings", describes how John F. Kennedy's historic 1960 campaign bears many similarities to Obama's race so far in 2008. If elected, Obama would be the first president from an African-American background, but JFK's bid as the first Catholic made him the only one elected to the White House so far from a minority background.
