Those who watched it on TV pronounced Kennedy the winner. Voters walked away with vastly different interpretations of how the debate went down depending on if they listened to Nixon or watched him profusely and awkwardly sweat on national TV.

The National Organization for Marriage put out a post-debate press release claiming “Marriage Takes Center Stage in Presidential Debate.” We must have been watching a different channel. Could have sworn the issue of marriage was off at stage right, even backstage. So too did the New York Times, Washington Times, Washington Post, Associated Press, and Politico – all outlets that either did not even mention marriage-related issues in their coverage of the event, or did so once in passing.
