Bob Swallows a Flock of Canaries...

It's October 18, 1940, and Bob has just given an oration at a Willkie for President function.  He looks like he felt he did a good job.  The lady behind him doesn't seem quite as impressed.  I think she is just more interested in Bob himself. 

Poor Bob ... He spent a lot of time and effort working in presidential campaigns.  He worked for Willkie in 1940 and lost.  He campaigned for and with his good friend Thomas E. Dewey in 1948 (Lt. Commander Bob was otherwise busy in 1944), and lost again.  His third time was a charm, working for Eisenhower's election in 1952.
