Fourth of July: The Perfect Presidential Campaign Holiday
With its widely attended parades, voter-filled picnics and overt patriotism, the Fourth of July may be the perfect holiday for a presidential candidate looking to connect with constituents during the long haul of the summer campaign.

"It is a day for people of all political stripes, a day for holding faith with America," said Robert Allison, the chairman of Suffolk University's history department. "This is the one [holiday] that has it all: patriotism and a celebration of our history."
