The American Presidential Election of 1968

Kennedy, Eugene McCarthy, George Wallace and Hubert Humphrey on the Democratic side; Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Nelson Rockefeller and George Romney on the Republican side. While the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement and protests around the globe were backdrops to the campaigns, the nation witnessed the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy, along with the tumultuous Democratic Convention in Chicago, only adding to the drama of the race. How did this all play into Richard Nixon's eventual win and what were the consequences of this much documented election?
