This Day in History: 1960 – Senator John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon face each other in the first nationally-televised presidential campaign debate.

Fact of the Day:  During the first nationally-televised presidential debate, John F. Kennedy was well-groomed and confident in his answers.   Richard Nixon, recovering from a bad knee injury and the flu, looked haggard and out of character.  Kennedy clearly “won” the debate, despite politicians reporting Nixon’s answers were more substantive, meaning television viewers based their impressions of the candidates as much on how they looked as in what they said.

Strange, but True:  The first nationally-televised presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon went so poorly for Nixon that for the next 16 years, general election candidates avoided televised debates.
