Description
A behind-the-scenes, sixtieth anniversary commemoration of the thirty-seventh President's famous "Checkers" speech demonstrates how it salvaged a psychologically troubled Nixon's position on Eisenhower's Republican ticket, set the tone for the 1952 campaign, and reflected period politics and culture.
