Dinner Table Politics


Apr 10, 2019

What does it take to run for president? Abby and Jim review the history of the campaign for the Oval Office, beginning with George Washington's (non) campaigns, Abraham Lincoln's debates with Stephen Douglas, and the history of campaigns that Jim and Abby can remember personally. (Jim remembers celebrating Nixon's win in '72 riding Big Wheels in preschool, while Abby remembers playing with Polly Pockets when W. won in 2000.)

Reagan, both Bushes, Clinton, Obama, and Trump all come under the Dinner Table Politics microscope, and Abby comes out in full force against bumper stickers.
