13. Thanks for this.

I like the idea that history does not repeat, it rhymes. This scandal isn't exactly Watergate, but it rhymes with Watergate; it's not Iran-Contra, but it rhymes with Iran-Contra.

I think that is a pretty fair opinion expressed by Woodward. Patience is important ....although things are unfolding faster than anticipated. The public is being informed of things that used to be kept under the surface, and out of sight. But there is a heck of a lot that is absolutely being kept under that surface ....the federal grand jury, etc.

The more pressure is applied to the administration, the more mistakes they make in their reactions. Nixon is no doubt looking down from hell, thinking, "What a bunch of amateurs!"
