From the Publisher

Bob Woodward exposes one of the final pieces of the Richard Nixon puzzle in his new book The Last of the President's Men. Woodward reveals the untold story of Alexander Butterfield, the Nixon aide who disclosed the secret White House taping system that changed history and led to Nixon's resignation. In forty-six hours of interviews with Butterfield, supported by thousands of documents, many of them original and not in the presidential archives and libraries, Woodward has uncovered new dimensions of Nixon's secrets, obsessions and deceptions.

The Last of the President's Men could not be more timely and relevant as voters question how much do we know about those who are now seeking the presidency in 2016-what really drives them, how do they really make decisions, who do they surround themselves with, and what are their true political and personal values?

The purported goal of this treasonous act was to keep the Democrats from scoring a major coup just weeks before the election showdown between Nixon and his Democratic opponent, Hubert Humphrey. Now

    Retiring Retirement: A growing portion of the elderly look and act anything but.

    You don’t take any medications?” “No.” The doctor stared at me dolefully, then reframed the question. “So, when you get up in the morning, what do you put in your mouth?” he asked with an air of exasperation, as if I was the one who wasn’t getting it. “Oatmeal, usually, and tea with milk.” “You don’t take any pills for high blood pressure? For your heart? Your bones?” “Nope.” “Nothing?” “Nothing.” “Not even vitamins?” He scanned my medical history, and the answer was there in black and white: a body mass index of 24, blood pressure a shade lower than the normal range, total cholesterol below 1

    Republicans Had A Breaking Point With Nixon. Will They With Trump?

    When will the Republican Party decide to dump President Donald Trump? As scandal after scandal after scandal engulfs Trump and stalls the Republicans' legislative agenda, the GOP has grown more vocal in their cautious criticism of Trump.  A "small but growing" number of Republicans are calling for an independent investigation into the Trump campaign's Russia ties, according to Reuters. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said Tuesday that Trump was facing scandals of "Watergate size and scale." And on Wednesday, Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) said that if the Comey memo is true, it would be grounds to imp
