  • From the age of Washington on, voting our presidents in has been a quintessential American ritual.

  • The video images of Ronald Reagan and George Bush, Hail to the Candidate also focuses on political-party appeals to women, and on pollsters, media specialists, and television to describe the ever-changing political race to become president
