Small story: My father was a minor Democrat figure in the local politics of Philadelphia. In 1962 the Army-Navy football game was held in Philadelphia and as tradition held (not sure if the current president knows this) the President was in attendance. My dad not only got us good seats, he got us into the backroom at half-time where the Admirals and Generals were hob-knobbing with the President. I was ten at the time. Somehow my dad arranged for me to be introduced to the President. "This is my son"-- and that is how I came to shake hands with President JFK. I remember looking him in the eye and liking the expression on his face. He was "present" for me.
