Tim Kaine Forgets JFK

I commented recently on the absence of historical knowledge in a Washington Post article. Now the same disease seems to have spread to Virginia's governor. After promoting the idea of governors (including his predecessor) as presidential candidates, a comment (unfortunately lacking a direct quote) raised some eyebrows about his knowledge of history:
He made sure to note that senators, too, can win but had to refer all the way back to Harry S. Truman for a good example.
Besides the rather important fact that Senator Truman was never elected President, how do you skip JFK?
