The world remembers John F. Kennedy today because his face was in the living room of nearly every American’s house from his campaign in 1960 until his death in 1963. Many people who watched the debates between Kennedy and Nixon on television would choose JFK as the winner, but those who only listened to the debate thought otherwise. This goes to show how charismatic and charming JFK was and how he was the first real president to win in large part due to his personality. The Kennedy family was borderline royal in America during the 1960’s and the young image of John Kennedy still lives in the minds of many to this day. John Kennedy established the modern day trend of American Presidents possessing a celebrity like quality.
President Nixon is one of the most famous Presidents in American history for being the first one to resign from office. While Nixon is famous for doing such an unthinkable act, he is also the one that gave one of the best and most well known speeches in political history, The Checkers Speech. The speech was given by (Senator at the time) President Nixon when he was running for Vice President on General Eisenhower’s Presidential ticket. A newspaper, the New York Post, had a front page with the headline "Secret Rich Men's Trust Fund Keeps Nixon in Style Far Beyond His Salary"; the article alleged that people were donating to a secret fund that Nixon had for his personal benefit in trade for political favors.
In the year 1800, America was still a new, inexperienced nation. The many faults in the political system were still being ironed out, and the introduction and implementation of these new processes were stirring great interest in the people. The Presidential elections were one of the biggest changes that the Constitution had brought about in its ratification. The elections gave the people a chance to have their voices heard and to express their opinions in whom they believed should lead their country, without giving them a dangerous or excess amount of power. The Electoral College was the system that had the final vote in who would be president, and it consisted of 138 electors from the sixteen states in which “Each presidential elector cast
John Tyler did great with his domestic and foreign affairs despite him being and forcing himself to be the first Vise President to become an President. He struggled to do many things with his obnoxious administration going against him every day. Tyler 's domestic affairs along with his greatest success was when he fought Congressional attempts at usurpation to establish the precedent that a Vice President becomes a full president with all a president’s powers on the death of the incumbent President. His greatest failure was being a slave owner and serving in the Confederate States Congress during the Civil War. Tyler 's major foreign policy achievement was the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with Great Britain.

During Edwin Edwards first two consecutive terms in office, he accomplished much that directly impacted the people, which proved his high potential to become governor in 1983.

Divorce is at its highest rate ever and I believe this is because couples have too much pride and self-entitlement today. Also politicians, for example Hilary Clinton, are so swaying with their views in order to please everyone that its hard to tell how they really feels. Opposite of Kreon, who stuck to his views and refused to consider anyone else’s. Kreon reminds me of Donald Trump, they want so much credit and respect, and expect everyone to blindly follow them. The presidential candidates this election truly scares me because there isn’t one person with a middle ground.
However, small flaws within the duration of the slide show reflected the presentation negatively. In order to effectively use a presentation within a speech setting, Adora Svitak needed to use the slides as constant enforcing agent for each main point of her outline.

Nevertheless, Nixon managed to return to politics even after such a major scandal and establish himself as an author, analyst and commentator. President Clinton even acknowledged Nixon’s “wise counsel” on foreign policy. Nixon remained as a politician who would use any methods he could to be competitive and advance his career (Wicker). Surprisingly, it has been noted by many scholars that the public has become desensitized to Watergate. In a report released by a Democratic and Republican pollster, “only 18 percent of Americans surveyed believed that Watergate was worse than other scandals of the last quarter-century” (Polman).
Ronald Reagan went from a simple shoe store owner to a student athlete and student body president to an actor to a politician and finally ended up as the Fortieth President of the United States. He stepped into the political spotlight in 1964 but before that he worked as an actor for Warner Bros. How exactly did Ronald Reagan shape our country into? He already affected our country as an actor but had a bigger positive influence as president. All of these things are things that Reagan felt passionate about and he held up his duty to our country as president Reagan influenced the country by his strong views in border protection and political views. He also influences us by his diagnosis of Alzheimer's Disease, which he promoted awareness about.
The Lasting Impact of JFK Unforgettable President John F. Kennedy notably stated, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.” John F.

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 many people are aware, they debated heavily during their run for president at a time when the need for a compelling leader was desperately needed in the United States. Both these runners were influential people during their time and had their own unique ways of showing it. Kennedy was a young but energetic Massachusetts senator from a very elite family from New England while Nixon was a seasoned lawmaker who was currently serving as the vice president of the United States. On one hand, Nixon had a much greater foreign policy experience and had spent almost eight years as the United States’ second-in-command meanwhile Kennedy’s youth and religious background was considered to be a disadvantage by nearly the entire nation.
America was at the top of it game. The U.S. had just won two world wars, had a steadily growing economy, and had just elected Richard Nixon as their new president for the year 1969. Government distrust had never been a main focus in American culture until the 1970’s, where government scandals, weak leaders, and a suffering economy created a sense of malaise on American society. President Nixon was elected into office in 1969. He was previously a Senator for California, a U.S. representative, and vice president for President Eisenhower.

“Joe 's been as good a ‘wise’ president being at my side on every rough decision I always made, whereas Clinton was one of our best secretaries of state and helped to fix the fun deficit on a whole range of important issues”. "The best truth is that the American democracy is not up to me and I 'm not just the one last straw America ever had” Obama said. If anyone were Biden, should cheer by the lengths of opportunities coming by his side despite a strong track record, while Trump is not blowing his trumpets loud enough to stop Hilarious Clinton who eagerly looks forward to topple the 1% richest for uncommon good, if
