Synopsis

Hubert Humphrey's official campaign biography in his 1968 race v. Richard Nixon for President of the United States "...A wonderful timepiece of the last campaign ever involving a New Deal Democrat...Even after all these decades, you can watch this fascinating film and see how it 'pushes buttons' for the housewife demographic, the anti-war liberals and the working class vote. It is worth study by advertising and political science students...5 out of 5 stars."
—Daniel C. Dennis, author, "Invincible Summer" 2011
"...shown more than any other political documentary in American history... did more to help Humphrey begin his climb in the polls than any other single thing in the campaign....I can't think of another single incident, speech, program, film, statement that had the impact on the American public that film had...the single most effective weapon we had in the campaign."
— Joseph Napolitan, The Election Game and How to Win It, 1972
