Who will you vote for? Obama, Hillary, or Mae West!
In 1959, a few months before Mae West's autobiography would be published, The Las Vegas Sun ran a spoof headline about the presidential race between Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy. Which new candidate would be campaigning to run the White House? Mae West was about to launch her "third party" bid from the Sahara Hotel, said the Sun, all in fun. How many think that Mae West probably would have done a better job on Pennsylvania Avenue than actor Ronald Reagan did?
• • Maybe you can't vote for an actress in November, however, you CAN enjoy several books about Mae West. Many are available at a nice price via Ebay.
