American History

The three main issues of the 1968 presidential campaign between Richard Nixon and Hubert Humphrey included all of the following EXCEPT
a. violence and disorder
b. the energy shortage
c. racial unrest
d. the war in vietnam
------------------------my answer: B?
vietnam war was still going on during the presidency of 1968 so President Nixon claimed to have a plan to end the war. Because of the Vietnam war, there was violence and disorder. Also, during that time, Martin Luther King got assassinated and he was the main black person who claimed for equal rights to the black people.

  2. Yes, we didn't have our first wake-up call about energy shortages (if you can call it that) until 1974 or 1975. It wasn't even a concern in those days.
