On May 29, 1917, a very sick baby boy was born to Joseph Kennedy and Rose Fitzgerald. That sick little boy, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, was sworn in as the 35th President of the United States of America on January 20th, 1961 (C-Span, 1999, p. 1). Less than three years later, on November 22, 1963, President Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. President Kennedy was traveling in a motorcade through Dealey Plaza on the day of his assassination. According to the Warren Commission, established to investigate the assassination, three shots were fired from a 6th floor window of the Texas School Book Depository, one of which went astray and struck a curb, and two of which struck President Kennedy.
He seems to lean to the left in the political spectrum, and yet, he always seems to be running against the democratic candidate for presidency. Nader has the country's best interests at heart when he runs for president, however, and it is the right of every citizen to run for president and to vote for whomever they wish. Hopefully Nader will continue to live a long life so that he may further defend the rights of consumers. But even after Nader is gone (he is 75 years old after all) his non-profit organizations will live on to extend the power of democracy in this nation, organizations like Appleseed, Democracy Rising, and Essential Information. Perhaps in 2012 America will find that Nader is running once more for president.
When Henry VIII became king in 1509 he had a number of aims that he wished to achieve during this period of time. He wanted to be seen as a very different king to his father Henry VII. He wanted to get England noticed as a major power in Europe and also enrich his reputation, honour and prestige. But Henry’s first and biggest goal was to get a male heir. Some may say that Henry was largely successful in achieving his aims with his biggest success being the battle of the spurs in 1513.
The Electoral College had to make a decision and vote on which candidate will be president. Hamilton did not agree with either men’s political polices, but he couldn’t stand Burr more than he did Jefferson. Through his political scheming in the House of Representatives, he was able to have Jefferson as president and Burr as the vice president of The United States. In 1804, Burr was running for governor for New York and Hamilton once again got in the way from getting that postion. Hamilton was helping campaign his opponent Morgan Lewis and as a result he was able to help him win.
Source G’s content shows us how people felt about him and that people didn’t feel he was perfect during his time as president only after his assassination.

One is to score him firmly as America’s chief executive. The other is typical view of the president only as a politician. From the Machiavellian perspective, Bush’s primary goal was to increase his power, rather than to confront America’s problems – to maintain the appearance of leadership while exhorting his position. Since taking office George W has been confronted with many new tests, including an unsure economy and global climate change. On the other hand, George W was very scrupulous as a politician.
He reportedly said to Jackie: ‘if somebody wants to shoot me, nobody can stop it, so why worry about it The following day, 22 November 1963, at 12.30pm, President Kennedy was travelling in an open top car through the streets of Dallas when three loud rifle shots rang through the air, apparently shot from the sixth floor of the nearby Book Depository building.

The truth about the JFK assassination On Friday, November 22nd in 1963 at 12:30 P.M., the 35th president of the United States of America, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated while he rode in an open limousine though the streets of Dallas. The official answers complied by the Warren Commission have never satisfied the majority of the world's population. According to an ABC News television poll, between 68% and 83% of the American public doubts the official government explanation of John F. Kennedy’s assassination. Some haunting questions still remain. Was JFK really killed by a lone gunman firing from a book depository?
It would be planned that President Kennedy would drive through the metropolitan of Dallas, waving at the people and greeting some shortly after. The plan seemed to fall perfectly until the car hit Elm Street right in front of the Texas School Book Depository. It was there that Kennedy’s conspirator took aim at the President and made contact with the President’s upper back and shoulder blade, leading to his death a mere half hour after the shooting. This of course left a great toll on the country. The nation was without a leader and had lost a great hero.
This means that it is very important to choose a nominee who would be reflecting president’s political philosophy in the Court. However, if Senate decides that candidate is far too ‘extreme’ in their views or has been working with the president in the past, they might decide to strike the nominee down. For example Robert Bork’s critics regarded him as being both too conservative and too closely associated
