Lessons Of Truman's Undelivered Farewell Address

Opinion | Joanne Butler
Summer 1947 and November 1, 1950: President Harry S. Truman survived numerous attempted assassination attempts. In the summer of 1947, numerous letter bombs were sent to the White House. Secret Service members intercepted and dismantled the bombs. In November 1950, Truman was staying in the Blair House while the White House underwent renovations. Two Puerto Rican pro-independence activists, Griselio Torresla and Oscar Collazo started a shootout outside of the Blair House. Allegedly Truman watched through his window before a passerby yelled for him to take cover. (photo: wikimedia commons)

In the end, the President inevitably returns to being ‘Mr. Citizen.’

2016: Two Nixons, One Election

Opinion | Joanne Butler
President Richard Nixon (L), listened to by First lady Pat Nixon and daughter Tricia Nixon (R), says goodbye to family and staff in the White House East Room on August 9, 1974. On Monday it will be 25 years since Nixon resigned his office, or "resigned in disgrace" as many of the news accounts would say, as it became clear the House of Representatives would impeach him for Watergate misdeeds and the Senate would follow by convicting him. In the quarter century since that day, historians, politicians and Nixon himself until he died on April 22, 1994, have argued his legacy and how his resignation -- the first by an American president -- changed the highest office in the land. - Reuters

Either way, the result will be ‘Nixon’s The One!’ But which one?
