I gained a lot of respect for Pat Nixon And lost even for Nixon if that's possible What a complete schmuck He not only lied to the nation but he lied to his family too Expected them to support him based on a lie The last chapter was pretty enlightening too the way he treated her There were a few events where he ignored her after she'd just done a lot of stumping for him Especially in Nashville She'd just come back from a trip to Brazil had the flu and felt awful but had to sit onstage with him and smile and act awesome And then he blew her off onstage so hundreds of people could see it Swell guy She didn't deserve to be shackled to such a putz But back then that's what wives did The author tells an interesting story but I hated the unnecessary jumping around He'd jump forward and then jump back to cover a time period he'd already passed to address a certain subject It was a little confusing More than once I had to track over what I'd just read and say Wait now when was this And he'd jumped forward 5 years just to talk about some story Then he'd go back to where he was and resume the original narrative Kind of annoying
