      The video begins with a clip of Eisenhower declaring he has no
      interest in running for political office. Since he is in uniform, I
      would guess that this interview took place in pre-1947. The next clip
      shows a portion of Eisenhower's announcement speech, a near disaster
      given in a driving rain in his boyhood home in Kansas. Then you'll
      see clips from his acceptance speech at the 1952 convention followed
      by some comments apparently made to be filmed and his remarks on
      election night following his victory. Next is a clip from his first
      inaugural, then a portion of the Atoms for Peace speech at the UN,
      and a typical press conference response which shows Ike's propensity
      to sometimes obfuscate, some said on purpose. The final speech is a
      segment from the Farewell Address, Eisenhower's most famous speech.
      The video also shows three Eisenhower tv commercials. There are many
      others to view on the internet. Eisenhower was the first to use
      political commercials. The spot with the dog is a classic.
