    Just picked up a copy of People and Jackie is on the front! Why is she still relevant? What makes a celebrity "evergreen" like our hubs? Who will be "evergreen" 50 years from now?

      I don't think in her case it's the "celebrity" that has contributed to her relevance all these years later..I think it's having the particular murdered-president that she had, and her place/role in his family's and in history.  Of course, his daughter's book and the publicity that's going on with it have refreshed/reminded the public of her; and are now serving to show the public even more about her role/place at the time.

      I don't have a lot of hope that my Hubs will ever be the Hub version of Mrs. Kennedy smile.  As far as Hub subjects/things in life go, though, I think human nature, the ages-old dramas of life that have been going on "forever", and historical significance are where the evergreen subjects can most often be found.  They're not always flashy, but they're often something a lot of people relate to and/or have interest in. 

      The only trouble is that with the common-ness/shared-ness of a lot of human-nature/history material, it can be harder to make it stand out as unique. 

      Remaining "relevant" for 50 or more years isn't easy easy for anyone or any piece of writing.  It always does seem to go back to the "uniqueness-but-shared-interest factor", I think.   smile

      Jackie Kennedy was beautiful.  She worked in the background, not too flashy and thus people got intrigued by her.  And she was the wife of an assassinated president who was much beloved by the Americans and who had an affair with Marilyn Monroe.

      Her life, if it was a book, would the perfect book to be written ever.

    Jackie Kennedy is not relevant,however,she did have information on the Kennedy clan and the odd behavior of this power crazed family. Greed,alcohol,affairs,murder and White House mafia ties,along with Hollywood and Chicago underworld figures,may never come out in our life time. All we have is speculation at this point,till sealed files are released in the year 2016..... Let's look at what we do know. The Kennedy's fortune began during the prohibition era,1920's and 30's. The Hollywood and
    motion picture business followed. A world war would interrupt the Kennedy plans for seeking the White House.( The older son Joe jr. was to be the candidate,but he was killed during the war. The mantel passed to Jack,a navy PT boat commander...... Jack became a senator and the rest is history. The father, Joe Kennedy Sr. vowed,he did not care how much it cost or who's ass he had to kiss, Jack would be President. Millions of dollars were spent,and Jack did become President Of The United States. He and his family would pay dearly down the road for deals made with Chicago mobsters,Union bosses and Hollywood high rollers with Vegas ties.After the election the Kennedy's reneged on all deals. This set in motion a train wreck of circumstances........Kennedy murdered by Oswald. No way brother. Oswald was not capable of such a hit. Ruby was used to add more confusion. This take out was done by really big time marksmen.They had to have inside help. It's my opinion they were German,2 of them. I would place them now in Argentina. Jackie knew a lot,but took it with her.Well,maybe its best we don't know everything. See you at the track.

      Caroline Kennedy has been pushing a book and CDs based on her mama's observations about the Kennedy assassination..  She claims that Jackie did not want this information published until after her death.  Whatever.  Caroline has earned wads of cash because of her name.  Why not cash in on mama when she can?  Jackie has always been her meal ticket.
