John F. Kennedy was the youngest candidate and the first Roman Catholic ever elected president. The son of a politically powerful Irish-American family in Massachusetts, he defeated vice president Richard Nixon by a paper-thin margin in 1960. Kennedy brought a new sense of youth and style to the presidency and attracted many young people to government and community service. He established the Peace Corps, which recruited volunteers to work in community programs overseas. In 1961, Kennedy authorized an invasion of Cuba, which ended in disaster and embarrassment. In 1962, when U.S. planes spotted Soviet missile sites in Cuba, Kennedy forced the Soviets to remove the missiles. At home, he supported legal efforts to end the segregation of African Americans in southern states. On November 22, 1963, Kennedy was shot and killed in Dallas, Texas. His vice president, Lyndon Johnson, was sworn in to complete his term.

Ronald Reagan first gained success as a movie star in Hollywood during the 1940s. He later turned to politics and became an even greater success as the main spokesman for conservative Republicans and then as president. After serving two terms as governor of California, he was elected president in 1980 and re-elected in 1984. Reagan brought a sense of optimism and good nature to his conservative cause. He worked to reduce the size of the federal government and passed major tax cuts. At the same time, he increased spending on the military, pledging to continue the fight against Soviet Communism. His determined actions contributed to the overthrow of Communist governments and the dissolution of the Soviet Union soon after he left office. In 1988, Reagan's vice president, George Bush, was elected president to carry on his policies.
