Socialist Nominee Speaks in Philadelphia

Philadelphia -- Surrounded by thousands of well-wishers, Norman Thomas, Socialist candidate for the Presidency, is seen here after speaking in Reyburn Plaza, following a refusal by authorities to allow him to speak in City Hall. Scores of police stood by during the address, but no interference was made (1932)

Okay, so who's next president of Cuba, John McCain?

Wake up!
