This past October the Coolidge Foundation partnered with Saint Anselm College’s New Hampshire Institute of Politics to host a world class debate on the merits of the Coolidge and Reagan presidencies. In a very close vote, the overflow crowd that evening in Manchester, NH, decided the debate in favor of President Reagan.
Now you can be the judge!
That’s because C-SPAN has just announced that it will air our “Coolidge vs. Reagan” debates on C-SPAN3’s American History TV.
The “prime time” segment of our debate event — featuring Gov. John Sununu, Steven Hayward, Gov. Jim Douglas, Amity Shlaes and Cal Thomas — will air this weekend, Sunday, January 3 at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The event in October also featured top student debaters, including high school members of USA Debate and college debaters from Saint Anselm College. That debate will air next weekend, Sunday January 10 at 8:00 p.m. ET, also on C-SPAN3.
After each program airs, you will also be able to view it online on the American History TV website, here. In the meantime, check out this promotional clip that C-SPAN has just released.
We hope you will tune in and let us know which side you thought won this “Coolidge vs. Reagan” debate!
Any chance of posting a video for those without cable?
