    Maybe not.

    The thing was that he might have lost the popular vote if Dick Daley hadn't stolen the votes in Chicago, but he still would have won the electoral college.

    This is probably more appropriate to the History Board than the Politics one, though. I would suggest it be moved.

    Attack the messenger.

    Daley made sure JFK won Cook Co (just in case)

    and JFK chose LBJ (who he dispised) as his running-mate.

    JFK was the man! A great, Conservative Catholic American. He wouldn't have a thing to do with today's Democrats.

    The Peace Corps, The New Frontier programs, Nuclear test ban, a purely Keynesian-inspired tax cut from the nation's most Keynesian economic team, fostering and codifying government-enforced end to segregation of private businesses, spending billions to create government-funded scientific research with no clear social or private benefit...

    That's what we now call "Conservative"?

    wouldn't be nearly as many threads if he did it that way.

    Not to mention pushing hard for our first national single-payer system of health insurance (for the elderly, of course). That said, this poster may be correct: today's Democrats might be too milquetoast for his tastes.
