In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary Best of Enemies, on the eve of the first of a series of TV debates between conservative William F. Buckley and liberal Gore Vidal, we learn that for all their bitter differences, one thing both agree on is America of 1968 was severely divided. We also hear the men's personal thoughts as read by Kelsey Grammer and John Lithgow.
