Indeed, no matter how your vote, be sure you vote.
Imagine a Democrat-Republican Presidential Ticket
Did you know that during his first-term in the White House, Harry S Truman asked General Dwight Eisenhower to run for President?
On July 25, 1947, Truman’s proposal was direct: rather than run for a second term, Truman would run for Vice President on an Eisenhower ticket. Truman would relinquish his role as Commander in Chief, and as Vice President “would be happy outside the great white jail, known as the White House.”
Eisenhower and Truman both described the meeting in their respective diaries. Ike’s entry on the right-hand page begins, “Astounding talk at the White House today.”
Could this happen today? A Democratic President inviting a future Republican candidate to create a very unusual campaign for the Presidency? Well, in a way it is happening. Follow a bit of presidential history on Twitter at @IkeandHarry2012.
