Excerpt quote from passage

John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a charismatic Irish-American from Massachusetts, was elected the 35th president of the United States in 1960. The election was one of the most famous in United States history. This is because, for the first time, the presidential debates between Kennedy, and his opponent, Vice President Richard Nixon, were televised.

 

John F. Kennedy is often included in lists that name the best presidents in history. This is not because of his administrative skills. John F. Kennedy was the type of president people could respect. He was down to earth and seemed to really care about the people of the United States. These people skills, which Richard Nixon did not seem to possess, are often attributed to the reason Kennedy won the election. Through his words, John Kennedy was able to convince the citizens of America he was the right man for the job.
