Pat Nixon: I have always stood by you. I campaigned for you when I was pregnant. During Checkers, when Ike wanted you out, I told you to fight. This is different, Dick. Youve changed. Youve grown more bitter, like youre at war with the world. You didnt use to be that way. Im 50 years old now, Dick. How many millions of miles have I travelled? How many millions of hands have I shaken of people I just dont like? How many millions of thank you notes have I written? Its as if I went to sleep a long time ago and missed the years in between. Ive had enough.
