Richard Nixon is far and away the most interesting President the United States in the modern era. His name has come up a lot in the news lately due to some similarities with President Trump, but those comparisons miss the complexity of a man who married unprecedented political genius with serious character flaws. Nixon has the distinction of not only being the only President to resign, but also the only President who managed to be praised by both Roger Stone and Noam Chomsky (albeit for different reasons).
