    John F. Kennedy

    I was talking to my african american boss at work. He doesnt know why people voted for kennedy and not nixon in the 1960 elections. Am not a historian but i doubt that nixon or kennedy promised anything to the blacks. What are your thoughts on why the voted for Kennedy?

    Oh brotha.

    You forgot the mention the fact that getting LBJ on the ticket with him was essiential to getting the southern vote. since before that they thought the Pope would be running the country if he was elected!
