- Program Description
“The election of Dwight Eisenhower ended twenty years of Democratic control in American government. He attempted to slow the intercession of government in domestic affairs. In foreign policy he relied greatly upon his Secretary of State, Dulles, who practiced ‘brinkmanship’, facing up to foreign adversaries right up to the edge of war, and then backing away. In the election of 1960, in spite of Eisenhower’s enormous popularity, John Kennedy was elected, along with a Democratic Congress. His ambitious programs went unrealized, for he was assassinated in 1963 before he finished his first term. But his youthful, exciting, dramatic, vigorous style gave the brief Kennedy period a romantic glow.”
