Audio history: Our friend Bill Katz remembers the 1960 election!
The 1960 election was one of the most controversial in US history. It was Kennedy vs Nixon. It came down to 110,000 votes out of 76 million.
Everything changed when JFK was assassinated in Dallas. He became a legend and myth.
Today, Dems remember whatever they want to remember about Pres. Kennedy. What most of them forget is that JFK would not fit in today's party. In fact, it's very likely that JFK would have joined Joe Lieberman and walk out on the party's irresponsible national security agenda.
Bill Katz was a college student and a party volunteer on Election Night 1960. Today, he runs Urgent Agenda, one of my favorite websites.
This is an audio history. Listen here! You will enjoy it!
