Never knew that, back when you had to get up to change the channel lol
happy week end xoxoNEW POST!!!
Way before remote controls...
Yes, and many say that Nixon lost partly because he wasn't as handsome as Kennedy, something that wouldn't have been as much of a factor before TV. Happy weekend!
I've been meaning to watch this for the longest time. Thanks for the reminder. Will try to see if it's on YouTube.
And in black and white.
Something about it being in black and white makes it seem a little more interesting too.
never knew that... i hate politics. lol!It’s a GIRL Thing
I've read that if you listened on radio, Nixon won. But on TV the charismatic Kennedy won. I don't know. I was only two. But...style over substance...?
I started watching Mad men series a month ago ( I am nearly finishing by now) and it is very interesting how they deal with this kind of political facts : Nixon, the Kennedy´s, the racial issue in the sixties, the war...I love it. Kissses, Adam:)
well this is the best way to measure someone else's credibility
Nixon had heavy 5 o'clock shadow and refused to wear makeup for the broadcast, so he looked pale and shifty compared to the handsome Kennedy. That's what did him in.
It just shows how very shallow we are really, and how much looks do matter!
