Best One-Line Summation About Richard Nixon

Over the decades I have read many books about Richard Nixon.  He has more shelf space in the den, with nearly 80 books by a raft of authors, than any other person I love to read about.  This week I added Pat Buchanan’s Nixon’s White House Wars.

From that book comes the absolute perfect one-line summation of Nixon.  I have never read such a perfectly suited, or concise sentence as that which appears on page 52.

Nixon was like a soldier who had been wounded badly in a war long ago, and, when the weather turned, the pain returned.

Brilliant.
