    Only for those who are interested in history.
    The link is to just one tiny part of the Watergate hearings.

    It's a sub-sub-sub part of a history website that contains enough videos, that IF : All of us together watched a different video 24/7... for the rest of our lives, we'd only cover a small part of the main history website.

    Posted, not necessarily for the political part, but as a current reminder that History repeats itself.
    If you decide to go to the link, use the main website header to see how this video history works.

    Older members, in particular, may enjoy going back to relive parts of their lives, going back many decades. :)

    Thanks @Tom Young. I remember watching as much of those hearings as I could, and it wasn't easy, because I didn't have a TV at the time. I went to a cafeteria that had a public TV in one corner, and got there early enough to claim a good seat. There was always a whole room full of us.

    Just looked at the beginning of the first witness testimony (Robert Odle). Odd I remember some of it, I guess, because he was first. He looked like a kid.

    Everytime I hear or see anything about Watergate, I still keep hoping Richard Nixon will be found guilt free. It is a shame that this is the only thing he seems to be remembered for. I think he was actually a very good president and probably didn't break any rules others had not broken before him.

    Thanks @ Tom Young for the Library of Congress link. I will pass it on to my daughter as well. We both love history.
