Although a television appearance may have caused Richard Nixon to lose the 1960 election, when a contributions scandal had threatened him nine years earlier, his televised "Checkers Speech" on September 23, 1952, saved his position as vice presidential candidate on the winning Eisenhower ticket. Highlights from this video include clips from that speech, and scenes of Ronald Reagan in his earlier guise as a WWII propaganda star, and as a spokesman for various consumer products on TV.
