Picture of the Day

A good photo of the guys who were the Democratic nominees for President when I was growing up in the 50s and 60s. Adlai Stevenson, distinguished and intellectual senior senator from Illinois (in the middle ) run in 1952 and in 1956, losing to General Eisenhower both times.

JFK (on the left) ran and won in 1960. Lyndon Johnson (on the right) ran and won in 1964 after completing Kennedy's first term after his assassination. The out of control Vietnam War prevented LBJ from running in 1968 (his Vice-President Hubert Humphrey ran in his place) and lost to Dick Nixon.

A good photograph of great 20th Century Americans taken at The Beverly Hills Hotel.
