To the right is Theodore H. White. He is a Pulitzer prize-winning historian, and he wrote a book called The Making of the President, 1960.
I am reading this book to get a better understanding of campaigns, conventions, and elections in general. It is one of many I have read lately.
I found many sentences in Mr. White's book that were pure poetry in both their ideas and the way he put the words together. Because I am assuming those of you reading have some interest in history, I decided to share this:
History is always best written generations after the event, when cloud, fact and memory have all fused into what can be accepted as truth, whether it be so or not.
