Very powerful to see comments by John Dean, Carl Bernstein, and Bob Woodward. Bernstein was clearly moved when recounting that there were subpoenas for him and Woodward, and the legendary Katherine Graham said to them, "I will go to jail, not you." There are new things to learn in this series. It's not a canned, flat recounting of Watergate, a monumental crisis for our democracy.

I didn't have an experience. But I think if I would have been Mr. Watergate I would have cashed out. Richard Nixon was one of the better leaders. Our country and others will probably be in huge table one day not to mention the drug problems Kim whetstone
