Although I have vague memories of the Carter years, the 1980 presidential campaign was probably the first campaign, of which, I was actually aware. Maybe it was because the star of Bedtime for Bonzo was running for office and I just happened to love that movie.
It was difficult for me to understand how Professor Peter Boyd could run for president. It was even harder for me to understand how the actor who played him would win the presidency. But of course I was just a kid at the time. Enjoy this ad.
Note: If Fred Thompson becomes president I will be posting some Law and Order Clips here in 25 years. Stay tuned…
