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.

After the discovery of his surprising public scandal, it has become incongruous to have any kind of discussion about Bill Cosby in a politically neutral manner; even though only one year prior, hating Cosby would have been synonymous to hating the Beatles.

Bill Cosby’s, Himself, has been regarded as one of the most influential stand up specials in history, so is it conceivable to dismiss his work from the upper echelons of comedic greatness? While Himself’s grandeur shouldn’t pardon any of Cosby’s maliciousness, shouldn’t it still be appreciated as a work of timeless

There are also many rhetorical pauses in the speech, not only when the citizens clap in their hands, but also when President Obama changes his subject in the speech. President Obama also uses rhetorical questions in the text for example page 3 line 8: “Feel a cold coming on?

For much of the election, Lincoln believed he had little chance of being re-elected. Because of the increase in war casualties, the idea “peace at all cost” offered by a democratic group known as the “Copperheads”, started to look more and more desirable.

In the end Lincoln won 55% of the popular vote and 90% of the electoral vote, easily beating out McClellan.
