Richard Milhouse Nixon, the Ace of Spades
37th President of the United States, 1969—1974

Richard Nixon was a conservatively dressed, jowly, slope nosed poker player from humble means. He was the first former Vice President to become President who did not succeed the President whom he served. A brilliant, Hardworking and wily political strategist, Nixon – in spite of making a career of anti—communist – was responsible for opening relations with China, and negotiated major arms agreements with the USSR. As a result the Watergate scandal — one of the most widely known political disasters in American history — Nixon became the only American President to resign from office.
