Kennedy-Nixon First Presidential Debate, 1960

On this day, 52 years ago...
"On September 26, 1960, Senator John F. Kennedy and Vice President Richard Nixon stood before an audience of 70 million Americans — two-thirds of the nation's adult population — in the first nationally televised Presidential debate. This first of four debates held before the end of October gave a vast national audience the opportunity to see and compare the two candidates, and ushered in a new age of Presidential politics."

Interesting discussion about the Farm Bill, at 21:22.

That's in limbo now, the Farm Bill, as far as I've heard.
