Kennedy vs. Carter provides a unique analysis of how support shifted from Carter to Reagan right up to election day, with Reagan elected largely because he was not the unpopular incumbent.

By showing how Kennedy was a far more popular politician than orthodox historiography has suggested, Stanley argues for a more nuanced understanding of what really determines political /5(4). The Jimmy Carter/Teddy Kennedy race for the Democratic presidential nomination in was an epic fight and Jon Ward brings us back to it with this terrific book.

The Carter/Kennedy fight had both a short term and long term impact on the Democratic Party, with the contest weakening incumbent President Carter, and most certainly helping GOP nominee Ronald Reagan to victory that year.4/5.

The result, says author Jon Ward in his new book Camelot’s End: Kennedy v. Carter and the Fight that Broke the Democratic Party, was that “the Democrats plunged into civil war” that eliminated any possibility of defeating the Republican challenge of Ronald Reagan.

Camelot was the name given to the John F Kennedy administration and Ward’s account of the tussle with Camelot scion Ted Kennedy, one that forced Carter to submit to the indignity of fighting for. On the penultimate day, Kennedy conceded the nomination and called for a more liberal party platform in what many saw as the best speech of his career.

On the stage on the final day, Kennedy for the most part ignored Carter. As ofKennedy remains the last challenger to defeat an incumbent in one of his/her party's presidential primaries. A fantastic well researched book. Brings to life the s and the battle between Carter and Kennedy.

The book also makes the president and Kennedy real human characters rather than just historical s:   Kennedy vs. Carter: The Battle for the Democratic Party's Soul.
