John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon, or better and more simply known as Kennedy and Nixon, competed against each other in the presidential election that took place in 1960.

As the candidates introduced themselves and Cooper starts the debate with an awesome question to Clinton, “Will you say anything to get elected?” Clinton explains that any changes in her positions have more to do with learning more about the issues and that as a progressive candidate she likes to get things done.
