Kennedy Nixon- First Televised Presidential Debate
First televised presidential debate. This video shows clips of the Kennedy Nixon debates that changed the presidential debates forever. Looking at the debate setup, it is almost exactly the same. It is funny to see how similar debates more than 50 years ago they are. This clip says that the point of the debate talked a lot about domestic issues. Whereas the previous clip I posted, the women comments that they did not talk enough about the domestic issues. It is easy to see the similarities in the 1960 debate versus the 2008 McCain Obama debates and the many differences as well.
