John F. Kennedy won the 1960 US presidency election by a small margin as the youngest and the only Roman Catholic president in history. In the peak of the cold war, Kennedy delivered the most influential inaugural address of all time, in which he inspires and unites people listening, watching or reading his speech around the world. I believe Kennedy successfully establishes his legacy of encouraging people to take positive actions for liberty through his inaugural address with the efficient use of ethos, logos and pathos. Kennedy gradually builds his ethos as a strong yet approachable leader in the speech. As the president of US, Kennedy has an automatic ethos.
Overall the people preferred Jackson over Adams because Jackson was able to relate to the people better, and because he was a symbol of the American dream. The upbringing of Andrew Jackson and John Quincy Adams, were very different. Andrew Jackson’s parents were immigrants form Ireland who were forced to raise him in poverty, but through this Jackson learned very important lessons in hard work. The only schooling that Jackson received, was in a local elementary school and than later reading about law to become a lawyer. On the other hand, John Quincy Adams was born into a wealthy family, and his father was John Adams, a founding father of America.
The Presidential election of 1968 caused a major shift in American foreign policy, with the issue of ending the Vietnam War being a main point of debate. The contenders for the presidency were Richard M. Nixon and Hubert Humphrey, with Nixon winning the presidency. Although both candidates ran similar campaigns they approached the topic of Vietnam differently. A major difference between their campaigns was the rhetoric used, with Nixon promising to get America out of the war quickly. The rhetoric of the 1968 election and the year following set in motion Richard Nixon’s rise to power which led to the end of the Vietnam War, this was accomplished effectively and within the first four years of his presidency through the promises made and his ability to accomplish them.
The biggest weakness is the long chapters within the mini books which made it difficult to understand where and what was coming next contextually. Stayin’ Alive by Jefferson Cowie was a historical narrative of the political and labor movement in America. Politics and values aligned. With final words from Cowie, it is recognized that the political ideologies changed during the 1970s but just as influential was the “music, television, and film turned the hopeful crosscurrents of the early years toward a rather unified message: save yourself or face irrelevance” (Cowie
It wore away their supporter known as the presidential reconstruction and led to victories of the radical parts of the republican party. During the radical reconstruction that happen in 1867, blacks finally gained opportunity to speak for the first time in american history. They were able to win elections to southern states leaders and even congress.

Many of the protestors supported both campaigns since the War negatively impacted the Civil Rights Movement. Beginning in 1954, the Vietnam War took place over five presidencies, starting during the presidency of Dwight D. Eisenhower and ending, over 20 years later, at the beginning of Gerald Ford’s presidency. It was a conflict that pitted communist North Vietnam and its allies in the South, who were known as the Viet Cong, against South Vietnam and its primary ally, the United States of America. At the beginning of the Vietnam War, the United States had already been engaged in the Cold War, fighting the Soviet Union, for seven years. Despite this, the United States still assisted South Vietnam.
One of Eleanor’s arguments was the National Youth Administration. This plan would provide grants to help young people stay in high school, college, or vocational. Many critics opposed this part of the New Deal because it includes blacks and whites, while segregation was still in place (Freedman 108-109). In the twelve years Eleanor Roosevelt spent as First Lady of the United States, she witnessed many hardships on the American people. The Great Depression, a time when American banks went bankrupt and American people lost everything, had already began when they took office.
Bush’s decision to address the nation right away turned out to be a good decision. If he had waited a couple of more hours or even a few days the American people would have lost hope and respect for the president. The audience response was supportive and peaceful which is why Bush’s approval rating grew from 55 percent to almost 90 percent. Bush used people’s terror and sadness to entice action. His speech was formal and well prepared.
With bipartisanship congress works smoother and is favored by the country with positive rating. When parties draw lines in the sand they become consumed with their party’s goals and forget what truly is important. As we see with congress being partisan, the country realizes that it doesn’t work because it lead to a government shut down and the country is on course to see another one. Bipartisanship is great because it works. When the government is working like a well-oiled machine bills can get passed on a timely matter versus sitting and waiting until congress changes the language to make it more republican or
The majority of this occurs in the United States from just after the War of 1812 up until the end of Jackson’s presidency in 1837. Most of this time is about how the U.S. had a lot of nationalism and let the government do many unconstitutional things.The United States was feeling great after winning the War of 1812. Therefore they let the government make and do the majority of the stuff that they would like. They created things such as the Second Bank and made taxes that were unconstitutional. To become President, Jackson lost the election of 1824, and won in 1828.
The Death of Reconstruction With the Civil War finally over, the United states can now introduce the Southern citizens back into their society. 1876 just so happened to be the 100th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence. Sixteen African-American politicians were elected into Congress which is a huge step from where they were a less than a year ago. However, Reconstruction was killed by the North because Grant was too wrapped up in his reputation, racism towards blacks, and the Panic of 1873. 1876 was an exciting year for America because the Declaration of Independence’s 100th anniversary was happening.
My interest was probably motivated by the slim chance of her being elected president, and my similar gamble of being a success; especially, in sports which looked as difficult as her becoming President. Also, her documentary film reminded me of how old I am, and has me anticipative about my future well-being; furthermore, in mind to stay flexible and possess an open mind. I was mostly apprehensive about the film, being white an all, and pondered both sides of that little (small) guy humor; moreover, the unappreciative status of it. Being the little guy of sorts, Shirley Chisholm seemed to be a plus for her profession possessing an attractive/infectious voice that inspired determination; also, her humorous female status contrasted well with the other political personalities happening at that time; such as, the Black Panthers. Nevertheless in afterthought of that time period, one can see we’re all dreamers an arenas apart from each other, and for that purpose space and the chance to grow suggests more than just work, rather an understanding of the needs of all people.
