Before Bill Clinton... there was this JFK


Mimi Alford, a former President John Kennedy intern, has published a book, "Once upon a Secret," about her 18-month affair with the president that started in 1962. Alford, now 69, was 19 years old at the time. The number of Kennedy's extramarital affairs is the stuff of legends, including movie starlets such as Marilyn Monroe and mob mistress Judith Campbell.
