    Yep! At least according to the caption. I didn't know that Richard Nixon had such a whimsical side!

    Nice pose though. Racket seem too short. Should change the thread title--what is wrong with this picture?

    Who knows why politicians think that it's endearing. It's just goofy.
    This candidate lost the Canadian election in 1974, not least because of this newpaper photo:

    Not in the mid-1970's and before

    Nothing wrong with a panhandle grip in receiving the shuttle at that height. By the way the finger curls around the handle, it looks like he's played racket sports before
