Earliest Political Memory

This Ann Althouse post pushes a lot of buttons.

What is your earliest political memory?

[Mine is watching President Eisenhower on television. Subsequent early memories include gavel-to-gavel coverage of the party conventions, the Nixon-Kennedy debates, and people storing food during the Cuban missile crisis. Growing up in Arizona, I followed the rising career of Barry Goldwater who went from being a Phoenix city councilman to an upset Senate race victory over Senate Majority Leader Ernest McFarland.]
