The first televised presidential debate took place in Chicago on September 26,
1960. Vice President Richard Nixon, recovering from the flu, looked pale and
sweaty. His Democratic opponent, Senator John F. Kennedy, had just come
from campaigning in California and looked tanned and vital.

Listeners to the radio broadcast thought Nixon won the debate, but television
viewers gave the win to Kennedy.
