Baby Boomer Fun: September 26, 1960

Thursday is baby boomer fun day here, no real estate so here goes...

It was 47 years ago yesterday that television entered the realm of American politics in its most substantive way to date. Campaign commercials date back to 1952, but this was different.

The first of the Kennedy - Nixon debates captured the largest TV audience in history on that night. Certain tidbits are often mentioned from the event, including, Nixon's recent illness, his refusal to use make-up, and the fact that radio listeners, (without the visual images), picked Nixon as the winner, while the TV audience chose Kennedy by a wide margin. The rest we know.

Below is a short video overview of the debates.
