40 years ago today, Nixon said goodbye to the presidency

Nixon4

Richard M. Nixon’s exit from the White House provides a nice distillation of his character. His farewell was sometimes poignant, sometimes bizarre and woven throughout with threads of deep dishonesty and hypocrisy.

In video from Aug. 9, 1974, Nixon says goodbye to the presidency in a speech to his staff and with an iconic wave before boarding the presidential helicopter.

Flattr this!
