6. You underestimate Nixon's sliminess. He was a cold fish, so one wouldn't expect him to have been

involved in sexual abuse. He was an equal opportunity misanthropist - paranoid, mean, and vindictive. Nixon's tapes reveal he thought women should not drink or swear because that wan't "feminine", and I suspect he thought the same about running for political office. He was anti-Semitic and a racist. He was a despot, but he exerted it only as far as he thought he could get away with it politically. He committed treason when he conspired with North Vietnam to stall peace talks to sabotage the Johnson administration and help himself get elected. He had no love of the environment in spite of getting credit he doesn't deserve for the Clean Water Act and the EPA. He'd probably, like many conservatives, be a climate change denier just to win support of big business and oil, not because he believed it.
