With campaign giveaways like this bumper sticker, Democratic presidential candidate John F. Kennedy launched an exhaustive campaign in 1960 against Republican opponent Vice President Richard M. Nixon. Despite charges that he lacked experience in foreign affairs and that his Catholic background would hurt him, Kennedy's knowledge and maturity eventually won him the very close 1960 election.
