If you're interested in reliving the TV advertisements from previous presidential elections, the American Museum of the Moving Image has put together an archive featuring every ad from every election since TV first infected politics in 1952. Our favorite is "Failure," a 1968 ad by candidate Richard Nixon. Campaigning against the Democrats for leading America into Vietnam, the Nixon ad asks, "How can a party that lets the country get bogged down in an endless war against a fourth rate military power promise anything but decades of conflict?" Pretty good question, huh?
