I always said Clinton made Nixon seem like a choir boy. The Bush administration makes Clinton look like the backwater hick he is. Bush and Cheney are
way creepier and far more dangerous than Clinton and Nixon ever could have been. They actually make Ronald "RayGun" look non-threatening. That's a
feat in itself. (I always loved the Gipper for his walk softly with a big stick, trust but verify style.) Here's a good article from Salon.com.
Creepier than Nixon
The man who brought down Richard Nixon says Bush and "co-president" Cheney are an even greater threat to the country.

March 31, 2004 | As Richard Nixon's White House counsel during the Watergate scandal, John Dean famously warned his boss that there was "a cancer
on the presidency" that would bring down the administration unless Nixon came clean. In his new book, "Worse Than Watergate: The Secret Presidency
of George W. Bush," Dean warns the country that the Bush administration is even more secretive and authoritarian than Nixon's -- in fact, he writes,
it's "the most secretive presidency of my lifetime."
"To say that the [Bush-Cheney] secret presidency is undemocratic is an understatement," he adds. "I'm anything but skittish about government, but
I must say this administration is truly scary and, given the times we live in, frighteningly dangerous."
