Now through Nov 4th The Museum of the City of New York is presenting an exhibit and public program Campaigning for President: New York and the American Election.

From the time that it hosted the first presidential inauguration in 1789, New York City has always played a pivotal role in national politics. Campaigning for President: New York and the American Election explores the effects of New York on the strategies of presidential electoral campaigns for over 200 years and highlights the role of New York candidates, third parties, powerbrokers, and voters in the race for president.

The exhibition features rarely seen, provocative, and often humorous campaign memorabilia from the collections of the Museum of Democracy, including a commemorative coat button from George Washington’s inauguration, a James Garfield oil lamp, A "Robert Kennedy for President" paper dress, and an original copy of the famous "Dewey Defeats Truman" headline. Presented in collaboration with the Museum of Democracy.

Mitch, and you call me an elitist???  You not only go to museums, but you blog about them!  There is a little political memorabilia shop in our Union Station that you would love, going way back.

Pat, Lol. I admit it. Elite is a good word. It means well above average. It's time to take the word back.

I look forward to being awarded the Coldwell Banker designation: CB International President's Elite.

The memorabilla shop at Union Station sounds great. Next time I take the train to DC...maybe for the inaugural.
