      wherever they want to actually be?

      Cold War, simple black vs white good vs evil foreign policy with lots and lots of militarism, McCarthyism in America, J Edgar Hoover at the helm of the FBI.  Good times.

      The American ones might have a bit of trouble convincing the people of 1954 that a kill list and indefinite detention are good ideas, especially for American citizens. Also, back then Americans expected decent jobs, and, if they were white, most often got them. That might be a problem for the relocated time travelers.

      And I don't know how Obama is going to function back then, since an AA President absolutely would not fly back in 1954. That must be why he wants to recreate the 1950s now:  he wants a version of the 50s which could accept him as President. He seems to want to recreate the 1950s without the racism, without the middle class, and without the rule of law.

      The party of Kennedy is also the party of Eastland. The party of Javits is also the party of Goldwater. Where is our party? Where is the political party that will make it unnecessary to march on Washington?
