It's one of those unimaginable matches: the stunning something Jackie O and the crusty Norman Podhoretz.

But Alternet talks about Mr. Podhoretz secret crush on the later widow to JFK.

Quote:
...
What is less well known about Podhoretz--and would likely alienate evangelicals even more--is that the godfather of neoconservatism once entertained fantasies of having a relationship with no less an icon of liberalism than Jacqueline Kennedy.
....


Get this:
Quote:
As Podhoretz relates in his memoir, Ex-Friends, he first met the former First Lady when Richard Goodwin, the former Kennedy aide, called and asked if he could drop by with an unnamed friend who wanted to meet Podhoretz. "Within minutes, [Goodwin] showed up at my door with a jeans-clad Jackie Kennedy in tow,"

In your dreams, as they say.

Quote:
"He thought she was coming on to him and he had a terrible crush on her," says someone who knew them both. "She was just trying to make new friends," says another source with knowledge of the episode. "It was a very fragile time in her life. She wasn't looking to have an affair. She was just trying to have a normal life. But he thought she wanted one and he was telling everyone."

When Podhoretz finally cornered Jackie at a cocktail party and made his feelings known, the source says, she looked at him with an icy gaze the meaning of which was unmistakable. "Why, Mr. Podhoretz," she said. "Just who do you think you are?'"

There was no way that Jackie Kennedy was going to become Norman Podhoretz's neoconcubine.


"Oh, Jackie, dear. Don't stay up late. (kiss, kiss). I'm off to wage war."

:lol:

There were many men who had fantasies about "The Wider" as some of JFK's sisters referred to her. Even if Jackie had been "coming on" to Podhoertrz, she would never have gone any further with it once she'd discovered old Pod been publicly bragging about the possibility of an affair with her Jackie Kennedy was very loyal to those who were loyal to her, but she'd cut them dead if they betrayed her trust...anywhere, anytime, and...anybody.
