On January 20, 1961, Richard Nixon retired from public life. After losing a painfully close race for the White House, the former vice president relocated his family to Californiahis home state and scene of so many early political triumphs, where he and his wife, Pat, now planned to build a handsome, four-bedroom ranch house in an exclusive subdivision in Bel Air.
For the first time in his life, Nixon was earning real moneyroughly $3 million annually in todays dollarsas a lawyer, syndicated columnist and book author. So it gnawed at his ego when the Los Angeles Times ran a sensational headline accusing him of receiving a celebrity discount on the purchase of the lot where he planned to raise his new home. Whats wrong with what I did? Nixon demanded of Frank McCulloch, the editor of the Times. He wasnt an officeholder anymore. His personal financial affairs were no ones business....

I see one small difference between Nixon and Hillary. Nixon was sitting there...with income as a lawyer, columnist and book-writer coming in. Other than some ghost-written books by other writers, she has no other career or projection of herself.
She is NOT a columnist or capable of writing a weekly piece. She hasn’t practiced law in forty years. Her 12 years of State Department chief and US Senator? Can you even name three accomplishments in that twelve-year period? I hate to suggest this....but she is a 88-lb boxer trying to box in the super-heavy-weight class, and can only box if enough journalists swing for her.
OTOH, he WAS the most maligned presidential race loser and winner ( when he beat Helen Gahagan Douglas, in the Senate race ) ever, and is still being impugned, maligned, and having patently ridiculous calumny heaped upon him still.
Still and all, what has been and is being to President Trump, is even worse.
Hillary? None of the above can ever be attributed to her.
I’d vote for Dick Nixon against any Democrat I can imagine were he still alive and eligible. Hell, Hubert Humphrey is looking good at this remove.
This author assumes that the accusations against the PIAPS were all unfounded.
While his knowledge of historical elections is insightful his inability to acknowledge the criminality and scandals of the Clintons discredits his conclusion as does his statement that her “gender” played a role. The people that didn’t vote for Clintdog would have voted for Sarah Palin.
Satan’s Prom Queen lost because the people that oppose her are convinced that she is a criminal of almost fictional proportions, like a master criminal in a James Bond novel and she has done nothing to dissuade them that.
I, too, was young (kindergarten) when Nixon was defeated so no direct memory exists for me beyond the reading of history books and various articles. This Politico article holds some interesting points of history yet they still can’t help themselves in being Politico. It gets even worse when you read the delusional space they call “Comments”...wowzers!!! Those who inhabit the blue spaces on the mostly-red geographic electoral map have really gone on a Kool-Aid bender for Hillary!
Enjoyed the article for the history and the insight to the true believers — thanks for posting it!
How many excuses has she given?
Remember Nixon's "last" press conference, on 7 November 1962, after losing the California governor's race to Governor Moonbeam's dad?
Short and sweet, compared to the Hildebeest!
But re your thoughts concerning The Hump? No he isn't.
Has she blamed midgets or transgenders for her loss yet?
Thanks for posting that; it proves that what I posted about Mr. Nixon is correct, factual, and indisputable.
Maligned : to speak harmful untruths about; speak evil of; slander; defame:
Poor Hillary /s
No, no. Soros is the Bond villain. But Hillary is a top-level henchwoman.
Revisit what he was spouting in ‘68, instead.
I love the comments. They are absolutely clueless why she lost.
We hate her because she destroys innocent people for selfish reasons and gets away with it. And by destroy please be creative and think of any way someone can destroy someone else.
We hate her because she uses minorities as pawns to get money and power for herself.
We hate her because she is a ruthless murderer who will stop at nothing to attempt to get power and money for herself, but blames misogyny when anything doesn’t go her way.
We hate her because if she is breathing, she is lying. She has no consistent relationship with the truth.
The Left hated him because he stole their glory.
She is the most malignant person in all of history. (fixed it)
