    I think it is too bad that the democrats had to demonize Nixon. He did many good things for the working poor and women. I think they did not want to let the Republican Party be a party of moderates that would compete with the democrats. They wanted the democrats to be the only party of civil rights; hence they pushed the republican party further right and there is where it is stuck today. Illinois has always been a place of moderate republicans, some more so than the democrats. I wish they would let independents and moderates rule from any party. Bernstein's mother was a member of the communist party I read; I hope he realizes that republicans as well as democrats are champions of civil rights. We will forever become polarized, rich and poor, haves and have nots, if you don't allow the moderates to rule. I read Nixon re-examined, which was a good book, and listed Nixon's accomplishments, as well as her analysis of Watergate (which she concluded was a fault of his advisers, not Nixon). I know one think, when I went to high school in the 50's, the first american Indians were moving to the city, a big change for them (one I believe can be attributed to Nixon), and I went to school with a Potawotami Princess, whose tribe was mainly decimated.
