Nixon was the first and only U.S. president to resign. | AP
Attacks on President Obama, demonizing of President Bush's war fever, moralizing about President Clinton impeachment for private sexual acts all find their roots in the erosion of our respect as a society of presidency. One man is the well documented root of declining respect for the office and the men (or someday women) while hold the nation's top elected office. Republican president Richard Nixon was responsible for break-ins, thefts, manipulation of elections, intimidation of the media and the illeagal actions of his staff. Nixon, the only president to resign in office, never faced trial as he was fully pardoned by his Vice President turned President, Gerald Ford.
