America's first family of politics seems almost star-crossed. A family of achievers and public servants, they produced Congressmen, philanthropists, and a president. They also suffered the pain of having two brothers assassinated, of a legacy of alcoholism, of young death, and of high-profile crimes.

One Kennedy died a dangerous WWII mission, a sister was given a lobotomy, Michael Kennedy died in a ski wreck, and John F. Kennedy Jr., in a plane crash.
