Lincoln-Douglas Debates

I know I've had my laughs about Fox News in the past week, but this one tops it all.

Of course Hillary Clinton was talking about the debates between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas. Not Frederick Douglas. Doh!

However, it is interesting to note that in 1872 Frederick Douglas became the first African American to receive a nomination for Vice President of the United States on the Equal Rights Party ticket.
