From what I can remember JFK was offered the protection of a "bubble", the same thing that the Pope uses to protect himself when being driven around to see his followers. JFK turned it down. But I think he gave the reason of having nothing to fear. (Must .... not ... finish ... quote).
It was only hours before the motorcade was to commence (as the weather was clearing up) that Kennedy himself ordered his limousine's protective bubble removed. Assuming Kennedy was not involved in his own assassination, conspirators would have been foiled from killing the President because of the bubble.

Just a quick topic for discussion... Anyone think JFK WANTED to die? I mean lets be serious.... what kinda guy has the luck he did? I mean His boat blows u? yet he survives and saves everyone else, obviously A dramatic situation, then his child dies at birth, then he becomes president, then he bangs different women left and right.... Kind of a stressful life? Not t mention, Exactly how many times was he shot? 3 right? after the first time, wouldn't u duck outta the way or something? try and stay alive? Personally such a stressful life? with all those things? Suicide might be on my mind too......
