1960 Kennedy – Nixon Debate (excerpt)

24 07 2010

When I first tried teaching history with YouTube, I was immediately struck by how bad the clips from this debate were. This edited section from John F. Kennedy’s opening statement suggests the manner in which he linked domestic politics with the broader Cold War struggle against the Soviet Union. It’s also the first video where I’ve tried editing, and while it’s not particularly good editing, at least it’s short.
