Contrary to the far left stereotype the most self centered types are lefties. It is time for the Clintons to exit and write books. As with impeachment they survived but at a great cost to our nation. The example of the Clintons makes me ponder the life of Nixon.
Nixon's crimes were trivial in any comparison to that of Clinton. The Clinton crimes were both far more numerous and financial in nature. Nixon cared about his country and sought to spare it from the divisive battle that ensued.
Nixon knew he had made a drastic error. However, he spent the remainder of his life trying to atone for his error. He worked with each administration that followed as an ambassador. When Bill Clinton needed advice he reached out to Nixon, not Carter.
Carter's antics remind us of how great Nixon was out of office. Carter has been even worse as an ex-President than he was as President. He remains bitter over his dismal failure and has worked
at promoting himself even against the advice of the State Department.
Nixon's spirit reminds all of us that a mistake, albeit a bad one wasn't the end of the road. Nixon reached into his heart and spent the remainder of his life trying to help the country and to remove the legacy of his error. All of us fall down at times, but the strong among us get up off the floor and find ways to make up for our errors.
