In between books I turn to the journals of Arthur Schlesinger Jnr. These are the dates I turn to first.

1968. RFK's candidacy and assasination
1968 Humphrey v Nixon.
1980 Carter v Reagan.
2000 Gore v Bush connundrum.
1958 First meetings with the Kennedys.
1972 Nixon v McGovern.
1973 My birth (Schlesinger doesn't mention this, he's more concerned about Watergate)
1976 Carter's candidacy.
1997 Any reference to Blair's landslide in the UK.
