This chapter focuses on the victory of U.S. Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy over fellow war veteran and Republican candidate Richard M. Nixon. It explains that the election was won by the slimmest of margins and discusses the variety of reasons offered for why the election turned out the way it did. This chapter suggests that how voters saw the Kennedys as parents was very much connected to the culture and conduct of fatherhood and motherhood at the time.

Keywords:   John F. Kennedy, presidential election, U.S., Richard M. Nixon, parents, fatherhood, motherhood
