Presidential TV Campaigns

Who can forget the negative television commercials of the 2004 campaign. The swift boating of candidates and the puppetry of smear tv campaigns. If you want to be reminded of the good, the bad, and the ugly take a look at this site titled The Living Room Candidate that has catalogued the commercials from 1952 to 2004.

The Living Room site also has a link for Internet advertisements and political campaigns. If I were still teaching I'd sure take a look at the resources here to better help young citizens understand the process.
