A. Lincoln and J.F. Kennedy
Both often stated how easy it would be to shoot the president. Lincoln supposedly said, "If somebody wants to take my life, there is nothing I can do to prevent it." Kennedy supposedly said "If somebody wants to shoot me from a window with a rifle, nobody can stop it." Note that both these quotes are each 16 words long.
Mrs. Kennedy insisted that her husband's funeral mirror Lincoln's as closely as possible.
Both assassins were shot in a blaze of light-Booth after the barn was set afire, and Oswald in the form of television cameras.
Family and Friends
Each couple lost a son while in the White House. Willie Lincoln died at age 12 in 1862, and Kennedy's son Patrick died two days after his birth in 1963.
Both were elected to the presidency in '60.
