History is not repeating itself. My whole (immediate) family were Nixon supporters. Nixon himself only tried to keep a lid on things for the sake of others, not himself. My father liked to joke that the only mistake Nixon made was getting caught.

Nixon was a hell of a diplomat. The White House should have taken advantage of that instead of ostracizing him.

Some people say I didn't handle it properly and they're right. I screwed it up. Mea culpa. But let's get on to my achievements. You'll be here in the year 2000 and we'll see how I'm regarded then
Call me names, I won't care. I still have respect for the man.
This is the truth.
