Under the cover of night on Nov. 3, 1948, editors at the Chicago Tribuneprinted the infamous headline, “Dewey Defeats Truman,” which was quickly retracted, but never forgotten. President Truman had won reelection despite the polls and political pundits prophesying Dewey’s promotion from the governor of New York to White House resident as the newly elected president of the United States.
Barring a repeat of the 2000 presidential election when the image of hanging chads were voted into American history, in the early hours of Nov. 7, 2012, the presses of the Chicago Tribune will once again announce to the world if there will be a change of residents at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. The American people will be anxiously watching for one man’s name to be in the news for the next four years and beyond, and depending on whose name that is, the future of our great nation will be permanently branded.
What’s freedom got to do with our next president?
