Nixon’s the One: The ’68 Election

  • Aired: 11/15/2010
  • 53:27
  • Rating: NR
Combining archival footage and original interviews with, among others, activist Tom Hayden, former Nixon advisor Kevin Phillips, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and historian David Maraniss, and bestselling author Rick Perlstein, Nixon’s the One is anything but a nostalgic trip through the “flower power” decade. Rather, it’s a sobering, wry look at how the Sixties divided us.
