A hungry man is not a free man.–Adlai Stevenson II, 1952

Eisenhower but lost the election both times.  After his election to the White House, President Kennedy appointed Stevenson U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, where his most famous moment occurred on October 25, 1962, during an emergency session of the U.N.  Ambassador Stevenson was grandson of Adlai Stevenson I. who was Vice President under President Grover Cleveland from 1893 to 1897.
