    John F. Kennedy was elected to Congress in 1946.

    Abraham Lincoln was elected President in 1860.

    Both were particularly concerned with civil rights.

    Both wives lost their children while living in the White House.

    Both Presidents were shot on a Friday.

    Both Presidents were shot in the head.

    Now it gets really weird.....

    Kennedy's Secretary was named Lincoln.

    Now hang on to your seat......

    Lincoln was shot at the theater named 'Ford.'
