"JFK In The Senate: Pathway To The Presidency" By John Shaw

Before JFK became the man who led America through the days of Camelot, there was John F. Kennedy - junior senator from Massachusetts. The senate is, after all, where JFK's leadership and presidential ambitions truly began.

JFK in the Senate: Pathway to the Presidency, is a new book that deals exclusively with JFK’s years in the senate and how they helped catapult him towards the presidency.

John Shaw is a Senior Correspondent and Vice President for Market News International, and a contributing writer to the Washington Diplomat.
