The postings begin with Nixon recalling the day he decided to resign and end Saturday the date of his last day in office with the 37th president discussing his final day at the White House, when he signed the resignation agreement, gave a short speech and boarded a helicopter for San Clemente, Calif. Former U.S. President Richard Nixon. (AP file photo) The segments were culled from more than 30 hours of interviews that Nixon did with former aide Frank Gannon in 1983. The sections on Watergate aired publicly once, on CBS News, before gathering dust at the University of Georgia for more than 30 years. “This is as close to what anybody is going to experience sitting down and having a beer with Nixon, sitting down with him in his living room,” said Gannon, now a writer and historian. “Like him or not, whether you think that his resignation was a tragedy for the nation or that he got out of town one step ahead of the sheriff, he was a human being.” Nixon, who died in 1994, had hoped that providing his own narrative would help temper America’s final judgment of him.

Former U.S. President Richard Nixon.

On the go home, it was Holly and Show vs. X Pac and Kane but X Pac didnt want the Big Red Machine because of his conflicted feelings. The Undertaker came out and decimated X Pac while Kane took on Holly and Show and then the Phenom used the steel steps on Show and Holly. However, when Kane saw that his brother had chokeslammed X Pac for no reason, he got all protective and chokeslammed Taker, before taking X Pac back down the aisle, at which point X Pac and Kane embraced in a buddy movie style that moved JR to shout hes almost human! The midcard titles were kind of a mess, but at least that scene was an entertaining mess. Edge got a mini-push to foreshadow his huge future success, beating Godfather, splitting from Gangrel alongside Christian, beating The Big Bossman, winning against Gangrel and Mideon in a tag match alongside DLo Brown (it was to be DLo against Mideon for the European Title at Fully Loaded) and finally winning the Intercontinental Title from Jeff Jarrett at a Toronto house show. He had down moments too though, getting pushed through Gangrels entrance pit and getting handcuffed to the ropes and beaten by Bossman. Edge would be defending his newly won belt at the pay-per-view against a pissed off Jarrett, who would have the ever alluring Debra in his corner.
