 Political campaign - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Politics is as old as humankind and is not limited to democratic or governmental institutions.
Some examples of political campaigns are: the effort to execute or banish Socrates from Athens in the 5th century BCE, the uprising of petty nobility against John of England in the 13th century, or the recent push to remove Michael Eisner from the helm of The Walt Disney Company.

 Political campaign staff - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Information on political consultants, people who do not work for the campaign full-time but still provide assistance in the form of advice and creative expertise, are discussed in the political consultants article.
In small local campaigns, the campaign manager will often be the only paid staff member and will be responsible for every aspect of the campaign that is not covered by the candidate or volunteers.
While campaign managers are often the lead strategists in local campaigns, larger campaigns hire consultants to serve as strategists and the campaign manager focuses mostly on coordinating the campaign staff.

 Political and Lobbying Activities
Political activities and legislative activities are two different things and are subject to two different sets of rules.
The rules depend on the type of tax-exempt organization, the type of activity (political or legislative) at issue, the scope or amount of the activity conducted, and the consequences of exceeding the given set of limitations.
In addition, the organization should clearly indicate the capacity in which the candidate is appearing and should not mention the individual’s political candidacy or the upcoming election in the communications announcing the candidate’s attendance at the event.

 Political and Campaign Songs In American Popular Music, Page 1
Politicians and their campaigners have long recognized the value of a good song to cement a message about a candidate in the public's mind and the result is a long history of political songs in America.
In fact, most political songs were based on already well known music and were often published in newspapers and broadsides with lyrics only and a "sung to the tune of" direction.
While the campaign song was coming of age, the general political song; one that reflects political sentiments or commentary on an issue was also becoming a regular part of the American political scene.

He rose in politics through Republican judiciary appointments, through his own competence and availability, and because, as he once wrote facetiously, he always had his "plate the right side up when offices were falling." His route to the White House was via administrative posts.
In the campaign he asserted his independence of the conservatives and of the machine that had nominated him, endorsing a progressive platform, which he pursued as governor.
