"Everyone said, why didn’t Jack kiss you after, which of course, he would never do there. But you had to march out in such order that I was about eight behind him… And I so badly wanted to see him before the lunch, just to see him alone… And I caught up to him in the Capitol and, oh, I was just so proud of him. And there’s a picture where I have my hand on his chin and you know, he’s just looking at me and there really were tears in his eyes… suddenly a flash came because I didn’t think there was anyone there. In the papers, it said, wife chucks him under chin. I mean, that was so much more emotional than any kiss because his eyes really did fill with tears."
