The New Rule of Thumb? What Would Nixon Do?

It was in the steam room where men achieve greatness that my friend Geronimo said that President Obama should ask himself “What would Nixon do?” as he contemplates the fate of Gen. Stanley McChrystal. I think that’s a “spot on” idea, a capital idea, a non-pareil–and I don’t mean movie candy. I call this the WWND principle.

Nixon of course would call the general to the Oval Office for a bowl of cottage cheese with ketchup.
