Serious and silly, unifying and polarizing, presidential elections have become events that Americans love and hate. Pivotal Tuesdays looks back at four presidential elections of the past 100 years to show how they shaped the twentieth century. Exploring the personalities, critical moments, and surprises of these races, Professor Margaret O'Mara shows how and why candidates won or lost and examines the effects these campaigns had on the presidencies that followed.
