Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy (November 20, 1925 – June 6, 1968), popularly known as RFK, was one of two younger brothers of United States President John F. Kennedy. He served as United States Attorney General from 1961 to 1964 under his brother and then Lyndon Johnson. He was elected as Senator from New York in 1965, serving until 1968. In 1968, he ran for the Democratic nomination for the presidency, winning the states of South Dakota, Nebraska, Indiana and California. Shortly after winning the Californian primary, he was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan, a Palestinian immigrant, due to his support for Israel.

Robert Kennedy in "Before the Beginning"Edit

Once the time-viewer had been invented, a recording of Robert Kennedy's assassination was packaged along with assassination of his older brother John, as well the deaths of his son Michael, his brother Joseph and his nephew John F. Kennedy, Jr.

Robert Kennedy in "The Fillmore Shoggoth"Edit

The fact that Robert Kennedy, Hubert Humphrey, and Eugene McCarthy were in a three-way battle for the "soul" of the Democratic Party in the Spring of 1968 was seen by some as a "portent". Another such portent was an iceberg that had broken from the Antarctic Ross Ice Shelf in 1966 and floated north to the coast of San Francisco in May 1968.
