In 1968, Richard Nixon was again running for president. After losing to JFK in 1960 and losing the California Gubernatorial race in 1962 he moved to NYC and practiced law. But in 1967 he decided to make a run again. The Vietnam war was hurting LBJ's and the Democrats chances to win. LBJ dropped out after a bad showing in New Hampshire and the great Hubert Humphrey was chosen as the Democrats choice. It was a close election, but Nixon finally got what he wanted. He ran on a platform that would end the Vietnam War. It didn't happen the way he envisioned it. His TV ads were overseen by Roger Ailes and CBS TV president Frank Shakespeare.
