Shirley Chisholm
Paving the Way
printer friendly version
The United States was said not to be ready to elect a Catholic
to the Presidency when Al Smith ran in the 1920's. But Smith's
nomination may have helped pave the way for the successful
campaign John F. Kennedy waged in 1960. Who can tell? What
I hope most is that now there will be others who will feel
themselves as capable of running for high political office as
any wealthy, good-looking white male.
