The sum­mer months used to be quiet for pres­id­en­tial can­did­ates. They were a time to settle down be­fore the fi­nal sprint to elec­tion day. Not any more, re­ports George Con­don. Mod­ern cam­paigns use every day pos­sible to strengthen polling num­bers.

In the sum­mer of 1992, soon-to-be Pres­id­ent Clin­ton had a wide range of odd photo ops: He played sax­o­phone for Ar­senio Hall, wore match­ing hard hats at a re­cyc­ling plant with run­ning mate Al Gore, helped a bride (in wed­ding gown) on to the stage of a rally, just to name a few.

To see these, and oth­ers, scroll through the gal­lery be­low.
