I'd still have all lifelines except for CTQ (not usable after the $50K question). I don't know if any of them would help, but I'd start with the 50:50.

250K: A gift! A no-brainer for anyone with a cat! I literally got up from watching this, wondering why Tuck wasn't sitting on his favorite chair, & had to clean up... well, this one didn't have hair in it, so it was just cat-throwup, which to my knowledge doesn't have a special name.

I'm so happy for this kid that the proud citizens of Las Vegas were cat-lovers.

500K: Unless you're a scholar of inaugural addresses, who would know this? Unless +1 is sure I throw remaining lifelines (ATA & possibly 50/50) at it but walk.

I'd never get this far, but if I did I'd crash on this question. Roosevelt and Johnson had been President for 1-3 years before their inaugural address, and Vice President before that. Bush was VP for 8 years. So why would they promise change?

Exactly my thought. My pick would have been Kennedy, but never would have pulled the trigger.

I had exactly the opposite reaction. It had to be LBJ.

Why would he discuss change?

- Space race;

- civil rights;

- war on poverty

The mid-1960s were all about how much the world was rapidly changing -- socially, politically, technologically.
