In 1952 It Seemed Like Everyone ‘Liked Ike’

These days, it seems like political campaigns and advertising never ends.  Millions of dollars are raised and spent in races ranging from the Presidency to the Senate to the House to the Governorship to the….well, you get the idea.

And it also seems like most of the political ad’s are of the ‘attack’ variety.  Rather than telling us why we should vote for someone, these ad’s tell us why we shouldn’t vote for someone. And they can can just flat-out downright ugly.

Things appeared to be a bit different in 1952.  Harry Truman was not running for re-election, Adlai Stevenson was the Democrats nominee while the Republicans had Ike.

Dwight Eisenhower was America’s most beloved hero in those days, month’s and years after World War II.  Both political parties wooed him.  Why?

Because everybody loved Ike!

Check out the campaign ad below that aired on TV in the days of television infancy.  And compare it to the ad’s we’ll be seeing soon for the various political races around the country.

The message here is simply.  Hey, we like Ike!
