Date: Tuesday May 6, 2014
Time: 4:00 PM - 6:30 PM
- Description: Winning may be the only thing,
but there have been “losers” in past
presidential elections whose impact
on American politics and culture
far outlived their losses and sometimes
the achievements of the “winners.” This course will take a
thoughtful look at candidates, often reviled in their time, who
were able to give voice to issues whose time had not yet come or
forge realignments of the electorate which would benefit others.
The candidates have been chosen for their unique contributions
to American society at different stages of our development.
Historical videos will supplement the class discussions.
