Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. on JFK's legacy: "Virtually everybody in the world recognizes that this was America at its best"

As the world looks to honor John. F. Kennedy's life and memory with the upcoming 50th anniversary of his death (November 22nd,) on Tuesday evening "Piers Morgan Live" sought perspective from the former president's nephew, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr..

"I think one of the greatest legacies of President Kennedy was that sort of altered view of the United States that, you know, that we were a force for good, that we understood that corporate domination at home was the partner of imperialism and truculence abroad," he told Piers Morgan. "We had to win over the world by our example, by living up to our ideals, by perfecting the union and not by force of arms and that we were going to be remembered, which was what President Kennedy used to say."

Joining the host from Los Angeles on the eve of CNN's special documentary entitled "The Assassination of JFK (1963)," Kennedy, Jr. offered additional insight on one of the most polarizing and charismatic figures in American history:

"What his pursuit for peace, his pursuit of civil rights and justice at home is something that even in - if the press tries to deny it or historians or whatever - is something that at that time and for a generation afterwards, virtually everybody in the world recognizes that this was America at its best," he declared.

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Robert Kennedy, Jr., and tune to CNN Thursday at 9 for the network's presentation of a documentary dedicated to the 50th anniversary of JFK's murder.
