Author Christopher Matthews and former staffers provide a compelling and often surprising look at the relationship between Nixon and Kennedy.
They arrived in Congress in the same year, 1947. Kennedy flew in on a private plane; Nixon drove across the country with all his belongings on the roof of his car. The differences between them drove one of the most intense political rivalries of the century. But the two men shared more than the public ever knew and were, in fact, friends.
Hosted by Christopher Matthews, whose groundbreaking book of the same name is the basis for KENNEDY AND NIXON, this program interviews aides, colleagues and confidantes to present the complete story of the relationship that Matthews claims shaped the second half of the twentieth century. Follow the two from their first days in congress to the presidency and beyond, and probe their complicated and debated legacies. And see rare footage of Kennedy and Nixon together before their historic first debate, which propelled JFK to the White House and Nixon into one of his many comeback battles.
KENNEDY AND NIXON presents a tale of the two men that will prove surprising to even political junkies.
