Watch ABC Stage 67 online: Episode 4 The Kennedy Wit

President Kennedy's speeches were filled with ringing rhetoric-and also with wit and humor that was eloquent and subtle. He had the gift of what comedians call ""good timing,"" and could deliver repartee with rapierlike precision. Films, stills and recordings recall famous and less well known lines from JFK's campaign speeches and calamities; news conferences (such as his celebrated exchanges with newswoman May Craig); addresses to statesmen and Nobel Prize winners; informal moments with his wife and family; and occasional problems with foreign languages. There's also an interview with David Powers, one of the late President's administrative assistants and a member of the famous ""Irish Mafia."" A close friend since 1946, Powers discusses Kennedy's tour of Ireland and his own duties during the campaign.
