The dramatic 1968 ...

The dramatic 1968 presidential election was a watershed in American politics. For half a century, the Democratic Party had dominated the political landscape. But in 1968, Richard Nixon was elected president and a new era of Republican conservatism was born. Some say 2008 may be the end of that era. Campaign '68 reveals to contemporary listeners the remarkable resonances between these two landmark political years, and how the events and consequences of 1968 help us better understand the 2008 race.
