Right For The Wrong Reason

John Dean explains that if Watergate happened today, the Nixon administration would have easily survived it because of the advances in legal ethics.

The sad truth is that if Watergate happened today, the real reason the Nixon administration would have survived it is that no one would have been held accountable for it, and no one would care.  And that’s only assuming that it even got reported in the first place.

    The rules Dean describes mostly apply to the little people, though in some ways they sound like an improvement. If we’ve learned anything under the last two Presidents, it’s that the rules do not apply at that level.
