"He's good enough for me in '68" refers to President Nixon's run for President against Democrat Hubert Humphrey and Independent George Wallace in the election of 1968. 

Nixon ran with Spiro Agnew as his Vice President. Nixon had already become famous due to serving as Vice President under Dwight D. Eisenhower and was preparing to run for President since losing the 1960 Presidential election to John F. Kennedy. Nixon ran as the leader of the "silent majority" and promised to help minorities start small businesses. He won by 43% against Humphrey's 42% and became the 37th President of the United States.
