Under the name Dr. Feelgood, Max Jacobson became Kennedy's close confidante and, in a sense, drug dealer. While suffering from numerous diseases, Kennedy was always in search of a way to keep the pain at bay. Dr. Feelgood's patients included not only JFK but Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Elizabeth Taylor, and Truman Capote, among others. It's also rumored that JFK may have been on Dr. Feelgood's elixir during the 1960 presidential debate when a charismatic Kennedy swept the floor against a sweat-clad and nervous Nixon. "I don't care if it's horse p*ss," said JFK. "It makes me feel good."
