5. I was not aware that Nixon had rehabilitated his reputation.

Some politicians and pundits in the more elite circles eventually would speak to him and consult him, but his reputation among the general public never really recovered, that I noticed. When he died his funeral was a relatively low-key affair; it was attended by the current and former presidents and many heads of state but it wasn't the big deal they usually have in DC for such occasions. I don't think it's accurate to say he was able to repair his reputation except among a few in the political/commentariat classes. And Trump, who has been much worse than Nixon, will never be able to do it. Nixon at least had the common sense to lie low for awhile and not stir shit or try to form another party.
