  • James Piereson, author of Camelot and the Cultural Revolution explores the twists and turns of the 1960 presidential election between Senator Kennedy and Vice President Nixon.
  • Craig Shirley on the rise of Ronald Reagan, focusing on both his abortive ’76 run, and the 1980 election that brought him to power and signaled a turnpoint in both the nation’s economy and the Cold War.
  • Details of Pajamas’ iPhone giveaway to win “man’s most perfect creation”.
  • Produced by Ed Driscoll.
