Default Tricky Dick

Watched the documentary which very smoothly laid out the political life of Richard Nixon.

In fact, it could be used in a history class. Hitting the important points and events surrounding his rising career.

Most of it I knew but some things stuck out as interesting that I had not remembered. Nixon made slurring remarks against the press. Especially after the investigation broke. And he had entertained using nukes in the S Asian war.
This I learned from his own remarks to Henry Kissinger on tape. Kissinger tried to cajole him out of the notion. Nixon had a hot temper not seen in front of reporters.

Anyway if you get the chance and like history documentaries, you might check it out.
