John F. Kennedy Jr. attends a June 1998 service at Arlington Cemetery marking the 30th anniversary of his uncle Robert Kennedy’s assassination. Robert Kennedy was shot after a victory in the 1968 California presidential primary. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) sparked a controversy last month when she referenced the assassination in explaining why she wasn’t heeding calls to exit this year’s presidential race.
