what does "to be rotated" mean? The thirteen Texas Congressmen making the trip were also to be rotated. Space had been reserved on Air Force One for four of them. Each would be allowed to ride in and out of his own district on the prestigious flagship; otherwise, unless Kennedy wished to talk to them, they would languish in the luxurious boredom of the backup plane.

Four would be allowed to ride on Kennedy's aircraft at one time, then another four on a different leg, and so on. Hmmm. Four times three is twelve. There would be one left over. I don't know how they managed it. Well, that's why they are paid the big bucks.

To be rotated would be like, say you have brothers and you all have jobs to do each morning. You take turns doing these jobs, you do it one day, your brother the next, the other brother the next. This would be considered "Rotating" jobs. So to be on rotation is basically, each person is switching occasionally with the other.
