PSIP Description: 
Dick Cavett narrates a look at Richard Nixon's stunning victory in the 1968 presidential race.
Long Description: 
Narrated by Dick Cavett, Nixon's The One: The '68 Election chronicles not only Richard Nixon's stunning victory in the 1968 presidential race, but the ways in which that historic election gave rise to Red State-Blue State America. 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-and how Nixon stepped into the breach to claim the biggest prize of all.
