Tonight is an important night that almost didn’t happen. The Presidential debates were first maybe canceled, then maybe not, then McCain bailed against Obama’s wishes. But now both men are back and prepping for tonight’s debates, which should be interesting in light of the current economic crisis.
Another important presidential moment has always been when candidates joined Meet the Press and showed off their public speaking chops in front of millions of viewers. For your viewing enjoyment, we have one of the more interesting of these appearances in the full episode above: John F. Kennedy’s TV appearance on Meet the Press on September 3, 1960. For others, including George H. W Bush, Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton, head over the other Meet the Press clips and full episodes on Fancast.
