I've often wondered why we got the Nixon we had rather than that other Nixon. Why he seethed so with resentment, and directed it at the wrong targets, as so many resentful people do. The Nixon that might have been could have been one of the greats.

Best book on RN I've read is Rick Perlstein's Nixonland. I think Rick gets at the roots of Nixon's resentments about as well as anybody will ever get at them.
