Old Jokes Are New Again

Here's a Democratic TV ad from the 1968 election. It mocks the VP choice of that year's GOP candidate, a man who was despised by liberals and seen as a political washout, someone who had no chance of defeating the Dem ticket of Humphrey/Muskie. The VP was a little known Governor who had served just over a year, and was picked ahead of another Governor named Romney. The whole thing was treated by Dems as a bad joke.

Who won that election again?
