C-Span’s Great Programs On Some Past U.S. Presidential Elections

August 10, 2016

The fabulous C-Span, which even with the ongoing impasse between the two major political parties in this country which has derailed progress, still should be watched more often, as a view to our Congress, has aired some truly fascinating programs on presidential election history.

They will continue to do so, with Congress out of session.

The roles and significant places in history of both Republican Thomas E. Dewey and Democrat Adlai Stevenson were discussed.

Mr. Dewey and Mr. Stevenson each made major contributions to our society beyond presidential elections.

As nominees for U.S. President, Dewey and Stevenson combined to lose 4 straight Presidential elections in 1944, 1948, 1952 and 1956, with Harry Truman’s startling win vs Dewey in 1948, the only time either had a chance to win.

In a future post, I will delve further into some of the politics of those elections.
