    Yeah, Nixon’s story is most likely the most well known around the world, amazing how a US president could have ever acted like he did.

    Awwww, tricky Dick! What’s there to say that hasn’t been said? The epitome of hubris in office, a man who wanted to be King.

    “You know, I always wondered about that taping equipment but I’m damn glad we have it, aren’t you?” – Nixon

    I am surprised that this article solely refers to the Watergate scandal; Nixon was known for doing much more during his presidency than that. Nixon was able to balance ping pong diplomacy with China, the desegregation of the United States, and anti-ballistic measures with the then-Soviet Union. America was under his leadership the day man first stepped on the moon. It is unfortunate that he did commit such a grave error with Watergate as he could have achieved much more in my opinion.
