Snoopy for President: 1968

History records one Richard Milhous Nixon as the victor in this particular electoral contest. From photos by Douglas Jones for Look magazine. View full size.

Creative genius

Even the fertile mind of Charles Schulz could not have dreamed up this year's cartoonish array of candidates.

Fantastic and Timeless

The focus and DOF is amazing. I love this shot. I am not a comic fan, but come on, who did not like Charlie Brown.

Lucy for First Lady

Back then a girl could only imagine she might be the wife of a president (as exemplified by Lucy's sign). Now she is able to witness a woman running for the office itself. We have a ways to go, but we have come a long way (though I suspect a dog will never have the chance to hold the office).
