TWO BULLETS....Martin Luther King and Robert F. Kennedy were assassinated 35 years ago. What if they hadn't been?

If both had lived, perhaps Kennedy would have won the 1968 election and with his help King would have kept the civil rights movement from going off the rails. No Nixon, no Southern Strategy, no Watergate, no Jimmy Carter, no neocon defection from the Democratic party, and no Ronald Reagan.

Then again, maybe not. But for sure the world would have been a better place one way or another.
