A new book out this week reveals what former First Lady Jackie Kennedy said in a 1964 interview.  Her daughter Caroline Kennedy has released content of the interviews in “Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life With John F. Kennedy.”  The tapes were recorded several months after JFK’s assassination and were expected to remain sealed for 50 years, but were released early to coincide with the release of the book. 

In interviews with White House aide Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Jackie Kennedy said she used to worry about living in the White House.

She also said JFK feared a Lyndon Johnson Presidency.  It was Lyndon Johnson who became President after JFK’s assassination on November 22nd, 1963. 

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America”, Caroline Kennedy said the book gives a sense of what her mother was thinking at the time.
