We take you behind-the-scenes at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History for a look at presidential campaign memorabilia dating from the time of George Washington’s inauguration up to the 2012 campaign. Our tour guides are political curators Harry Rubenstein and Larry Bird who scout the Democratic and Republican national conventions every four years, looking for just the right buttons, signs and novelty hats that will someday open a window for future historians into our times and politics. close
