4. "Nixons Ende"
I was in Germany when Tricky Dicky finally resigned. We heard it first on German radio while driving around, and then swithced to AFN to get the news in English.

That night, on German TV, they had a special news show, "Nixons Ende", that chronicled the whole sorrry affair.

I do recall this was sort of a slow start, too. I think the burglary had happened in the later days of the McGovern campaign...and for some reason it hit the news (who burgles political party HQs anyway)....speculation began early that something fishy was up.

But also recall the Democrats did control Congress, so could actually investigate this.

With Bush, the GOP is running the show, so I dont expect much to happen.
