Beatlemania was at its height in 1964.
It was also a Presidential election year — Lyndon B. Johnson vs. Barry Goldwater.
As many 14-year-old Beatle fans were too young to vote in the real election, they cast their vote for one of fab four.
Ringo supporters were the most organized and successful.
There was a “Ringo for President” novelty song and a slew of Ringo pins and buttons.
The Ringo for President campaign still exists.
Here’s a “Ringo for President 2012″ Facebook fan page!
