  • Overview
    At the Presidential primaries in the summer of 1960 in Philadelphia, an ethical man running for the Presidential nomination runs against an "unscrupulous" man. Populist southern senator Joseph Cantwell is a "bigot and a charlatan", while William Russell, who prides himself on his honesty, is the liberal candidate. Both candidates try to get the endorsement of the popular outgoing president, who enjoys not telling them which one he'll endorse.
