You Would Never See This Photo In Election 2016

January 11, 2016

Time magazine assembled 27 photos of Richard Nixon on the campaign trail which span from his early years to the last race for president.  One picture stands out as reminder of how far this nation has come, and what once was acceptable for a politician to engage in would now be correctly viewed as a blunder of mass proportions.

This photo from the Republican Convention in 1960 is a perfect example of what could never happen in today’s political world.
