"They still say "I like Ike" in Abilene, Kansas"

When I saw this sign as I approached Abilene, I was reminded of a more quiet and respectful time in American Politics. Certainly a contrast to the current elections across the country this Fall and yes, what an irresistable campaign slogan, which most of that generation remember in "I like Ike.".

Dwight D. Eisonhower (1890-1969) was born in raised in Abilene,Kansas, and I was fortunate to have a guided tour of his family home where he was brought up with his five brothers. I also visited the Eisonhower Library and Museum where his growing up years, army years, presidential years and post presidential years were all documented.
