Summary J.Q. Adams, B. Harrison, FDR, Kennedy: A republican office with no bloodline, the U.S. presidency retains a royal similarity. American families prominent in high office bespeak homes with a strong public service ethic. These four leaders, raised to high ideals of republican statecraft from childhood, gained unique benefits from famous relations, yet showed a keen sense of family ties and responsibilities linked to their family names.
