Many Americans consider John F. Kennedy's presidency to represent the apex of American liberalism. Kennedy's ""Vital Center"" blueprint united middle-class and working-class Democrats and promoted freedom abroad while recognizing the limits of American power. Liberalism thrived in the early 1960s, but its heyday was short-lived.
