Hulu brings JFK back to life...

John F. Kennedy has become something of a modern myth. Those of us who are history buffs know how truly incredible he was as a political figure, but often times the substance of what he actually stood for gets lost in the mythical fog of hindsight. Hulu has brought Kennedy, as well as America's other recent presidents, back to life in rebroadcasts of interviews each gave prior to being elected. The below is taken from Congressman John F. Kennedy's first appearance on Meet the Press and originally aired live on December 2, 1951. The second video is the first interview granted by Senator Kennedy, again to the panel on Meet the Press, after announcing his candidacy for President and aired on January 3, 1960.
