This crook was elected to be a heartbeat from the Presidency not just once - but twice.
If Agnew had been an honest man, he'd have become President of the United States.
If Nixon had lost in '72, Sargeant Shriver, not Agnew, would have become President when George McGovern was forced to resign because of his dirty tricks against the Nixon campaign. It's so much fun to re-write history.
There was no mail Tuesday and no Wall Street - a memorial to President Ford. I wondered how, someday, we'll celebrate the death of George W. who, it has been pointed out repeatedly, has made Nixon (who was not a crook) seem like a much better President.
"People have got to know whether or not their President's a crook. Well, I'm not a crook. I've earned everything I've got." Richard M. NixonIncluding his pardon.
