President Nixon

President Richard M. Nixon

"I like him as a family man, and because he never gives up and is always true to himself. Of course, many of the qualities that make him what he is are negative—his self-centeredness, his partisanship, his anything-to-win methods, his anger, among others—but he is being himself as he acts them out." Stephen E. Ambrose, historian and author of Nixon: Ruin and Recovery 1973-1990 (1991)
