ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the multiple-adviser principle in the U.S. presidency and the background of President-elect John F. Kennedy. The multiple-adviser principle is highly thought of in the country but it is a principle that can be applied more easily by a President-elect than by a President. The most striking thing about Kennedy's taste in people is his preference for intellectual.
