Watch Online Every Presidential Debate Since 1960–and Revisit America’s Saner Political Days




On Wednesday night, Las Vegas will mercifully host the final presidential debate. And it promises to be another rated-R affair. You’d except nothing less from the candidate who’s going to “make America great again.”

If you want a spectacle your kids can actually watch, then shut your TVs and travel back into America’s past. Created by PBS and Microsoft, the web site watchthedebates.org lets you watch every televised presidential debate since 1960. They’re generally substantive, all rated PG, and certainly a little nostalgia-inducing.

Above you can watch Kennedy and Nixon go at it in the first televised debate (1960). Head over to www.watchthedebates.org for more.
