This week in Professor Putnam lecture we talked about the 1974 impeachment of Richard Nixon. Today at my game my coach made a joke about one of my teammates saying he would not be fit to be president. This reminded me of our talk of Nixons impeachment and the rash decisions he made. Putnam showed us a video on him resigning and giving up his place in office and also told us why Nixon “resigned” instead of being impeached. This intrigued my attention because it was funny that my coach would say my teammate wouldn’t be fit to be president because he would make dumb decisions. The harsh comment reminded me of the harsh comments that Nixon would receive at the time and comments he would receive in the future for the decisions he made.
