What if Bobby didn’t Leave Through the Kitchen?

While campaigning at The Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, on June 5, 1968, Bobby Kennedy left the ballroom after an address and found himself in deep trouble. He went through the hotel kitchen despite being advised by his bodyguard to avoid that area of the hotel. In a crowded kitchen passageway, Sirhan Sirhan opened fire and Kennedy was hit three times killing him.
I think Bobby Kennedy was ahead of his time in terms of his social policies. What would have happened if he wasn’t assassinated? Would he have become president? What policies would he have enacted? Could he have halted the Vietnam War and passed legislation to aid race relations and socioeconomic issues?

  1. What a tragedy is a tumultuous year. Do not know if Sirhan was stalking him. Or just a chance encounter. Of course he had a gun. So that can’t be very random.

    Fun to read your alt history and think about what might have been.
