Still Debating, Though They Agree On The Nap

Kennedy aide Ted Sorensen on the first Nixon-Kennedy debate in 1960:
Kennedy — who had no debate coach and almost never rehearsed — arrived in Chicago the day before the debate and, after a long morning reviewing potential questions and issues in the sunlight on his hotel roof...was sufficiently relaxed to nap.
Journalist Aaron Barnhart:
Kennedy...had trained extensively with aides for the debate and took a refreshing nap before the telecast.
