Tom Wicker discusses One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream.

Tom Wicker discussed his book, "One of Us: Richard Nixon and the American Dream." He wrote the book in an attempt to explain how other presidents have faced more serious problems than Nixon did, but were still more accepted by the public. For instance, he compares Nixon's Watergate scandal to Reagan's Iran-Contra affair, and points out the Reagan's situation may have been more serious but his never had a serious threat of impeachment. In his book, he examines the people and events which shaped the 37th president's life and aspirations. He explained his motivation to write the book as a desire "to understand this strange, elusive, even bizarre man. He also talked about the effect Nixon's presidency had on politics at the time of his resignation, and how the effect has continued through the present day. (timspalding)… (more)
