I cast my first vote for President in 1956. I voted for Adlai Stevenson even though I could not read his name on the ballot as I was only four years old.
I cast my next vote for President in 1960 when I was eight. I voted for John F. Kennedy.
In 1964, at the age of 12, I voted for Lyndon Johnson.
Clearly, I was a young Democrat. A very young Democrat.
SOUTH PITTSBURG, TENNESSEE – This pretty little town (population 3,018) about 20 miles west of Chattanooga, is not Rocky Top. But you can get corn from a jar here. You can also get a slice of cornbread and a round of golf, maybe even with Peyton Manning.
