Richard Milhous Nixon: "Tricky Dick." Forty-seven-year-old former California congressman and senator. Hero of the Alger Hiss espionage case. Ruthless campaigner. Tearful survivor of the Checkers incident. Dwight Eisenhower's Uriah Heep-like vice president. The 1960 Republican nominee. Hampered by a bad knee and worse makeup and strategy, he spectacularly loses the first debate to JFK. Jack Kennedy, says, John Kenneth Galbraith, "felt sorry for Nixon because he does not know who he is, and at each stop he had to decide which Nixon he is at the moment - which must be very exhausting."
