The President

They had a great relationship. I think there was enormous affection between them, and admiration on each of their parts. It was funny, so often people said they couldn’t understand their dialogue. It was because one of them would start a sentence and the other would finish it. They knew exactly where the other one was going.

When Jack died it was like a tidal wave of grief. To see this vibrant man with all his character, and sense of fun, and wonderful judgement… all was lost. Everyone was devastated. It was like Bobby had lost both arms. I didn’t feel like I could reach out to him. It was six months of just… blackness. It took a long time for him to come out of that.
