Jim Lehrer, who has moderated six Presidential and Vice Presidential debates, hosts this chronicle of "the main events" of recent national campaigns. The debates began with Kennedy and Nixon in 1960, and they've been a feature of every campaign since 1976. All the participants except Al Gore and Lloyd Bentsen review their performances here.
