It is perfectly plausible that Sullivan would have given the President the option of suicide. Yes, he could have possibly have killed Richmond but that was too risky. Better to confront him with what he knows and then back him into a corner. He knew what happened the night that Christy was killed based on Luther's eye witness account. Being a coward, with no Chief of Staff to protect him, Richmond may have opted for the " easy" solution. You are probably right. In 1985, Iraq was regarded as a friend of the West . Saddam Hussein was at war with Iran so he was not a hate figure , the way Gaddafi was. How times change... We can keep striving for a better society without opting for total revolutionary change. Money, fame , race and power should not be the avenue for some to escape the consequences of their misdeeds. Mary Jo Kopechne's family should have sued Ted Kennedy. Lucky for him, he had the Catholic Church on his side to work them over. Not only did he escape from an accident, he escaped justice. Yes, the journalist is a well meaning liberal who wants to tell Jane's story. Reminds me of the film The Help, where a well meaning liberal wants to tell the story of the domestic helpers in white homes. Guess who also starred in that film? It was a very poor action movie. Nothing new or exciting about it. Two hours lost that I will never get back. In the book, there is no romance between them. There is clearly an attraction, but they are too busy trying to stay alive. The book does end with the possibility of a relationship between as they both take a "lets see what happens approach". I would not say that she was dumb, but she was naive and not very worldly wise. You would not describe her as deep or thoughtful. I can imagine that she never left Dallas, and or even Texas. She clearly put the Kennedys on a pedestal, hence her trip to the airport. I think she was did not give a lot of thought to racial matters due to her naive nature. Point well made, Alerra. However, I think you mean the IRA, the Irish Republican Army, not the NRA. I forgot to mention the Westland Crisis in 1986, which would eventually pave the way for her downfall. Michael Heseltine resigned from the Cabinet. It was an early sign that all was not well. The Crown did not even refer to this. Isn't it a "screw you" look to Rebecca?? She is free from the ghost of this woman. View all replies >
