1st Nixon/Kennedy Debate (1960) P1

1960 Presidential Election

On the morning of September 26, 1960, John F. Kennedy was a relatively unknown senator from Massachusetts. But by the end of the evening, he was a star. It's considered common knowledge that without the nation's first televised debate Kennedy would never have been president. But beyond securing his presidential career, the 60-minute duel between the handsome Irish-American senator and Vice President Richard Nixon fundamentally altered political campaigns, television media and America's political history.
