Summary

  • This episode of Meet the Press marks Richard Nixon's final appearance on the show. Over the course of the program, Nixon reflects on a mixed and uphill political career, including his years in the Oval Office. Using his political acumen, he offers penetrating insights into the issues and candidates shaping the 1988 election, the situations in the Soviet Union and the Middle East, the U.S. economy, the Iran-Contra affair, the Reagan Revolution, the "sleaze factor" in politics, the Watergate scandal, his place in history, what he wished he'd done while in office, and more. This is a truly changed Nixon. Introduced by Tim Russert.
