[Reveal] Spoiler: +1
Dan initially ruled out D as Nixon's VP while they are looking pre-Kennedy
+1 is his mom Julie who was inclined to guess either A or D
They figured it was Eisenhower's VP they are seeking and that Eisenhower is a Republican.
Did not think Nixon or Goldwater was a VP and was not sure if Goldwater was a Republican, while Dan was thinking a Democrat

Went with B due to uncertainty about Goldwater's political party
