Watch The Kennedys online: Episode 2 Shared Victories, Private Struggles

On the morning of the 1960 presidential election, Joe Sr. continues to pull out all the stops to guarantee Jack's victory. Bobby Kennedy, who has been drafted by his father to serve as Jack's campaign manager, suffers the slings and arrows of Joe Sr.'s wrath as the returns take a turn against them. Bobby tells his wife Ethel that after the election – win or lose - he's out of politics for good. A trip back in time reveals Jack's lack of enthusiasm for politics, his father's fraudulent efforts to ensure his son's election to Congress in 1946, the congressman's introduction to Jacqueline Bouvier five years later, and their eventual marriage, despite Jack's reputation as a ladies' man with a penchant for wooing women. Fast forward to November 9, 1960 - and it's official; John F. Kennedy is the new president - by the closest margin in U.S. history. In a private moment, Jackie tells Jack she won't tolerate any more of his affairs. "I've had my private humiliations. I won't have them in front of the American people," she says.
