And I was supposed to do the same thing.`` Jackie, the ethereal First Lady, the epitome of sophistication, and Ethel, the epitome of motherhood, then, the Kennedy sisters: smart, committed, accomplished.  ``I just couldn`t keep up. I remember thinking the Kennedys are so good at everything, and I`m a flop.``
