Obama, Clintons honor President Kennedy 50 years after assassination

WASHINGTON, Nov 20 (Reuters) – President Barack Obama joined
with Bill and Hillary Clinton on Wednesday to recognize the
legacy of John F. Kennedy, the president who inspired a
generation until he was felled by an assassin’s bullets 50 years
ago this week.

Obama, former President Clinton and former Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton laid a wreath and bowed their heads before
Kennedy’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery. As a bugler
played “Taps,” an eternal flame at the gravesite fluttered in a
chilly autumn breeze and Kennedy family members stood nearby.
