U.S. Presidential Campaign (1976)

1976 Dry Bones cartoon - Pre-Election Pro-Israel promises fade after a U.S. President gets Elected.
This cartoon from back in 1976 is based on what was accepted practice at that time. Candidates for the American Presidency sought votes by showing how Pro-Israel they were. Then, after being elected, the promises and positions just seemed to fade away.

These days things are very different. No candidate in the current race shows any indication of thinking that support of Israel is a big vote-getter.

And the latest news is that one reason that Ralph Nader is entering the race is because, he says, Obama has "sold out to Israeli interests"!
