Nixon at the Tournament of Roses Parade

Monday, December 31st, 2007

Who’s that cheery guy waving from the back of a convertible Cadillac? Why, it’s the nation’s most beloved politician, Richard Nixon! Presiding over the 1960 Tournament of Roses parade, Nixon’s car was overcome by beautiful women wishing to lavish kisses upon the vice-president…oh, um, sorry, this IS Nixon we’re talking about, and from what I’ve read he was always a bit creepy. Notice the number of people in the crowd looking away as he drove by. I actually uploaded these to Collector’s Quest, in conjunction with an article I wrote.
