Richard “Dick” Nixon possessed many talents and wore several hats during his well-chronicled life — most of which he spent in public service. Soldier. Lawyer. Congressman. Senator. Vice President. President. Trickster. Etc. Furthermore, he even managed to get his drink on regularly, pounding rum and Cokes late at night while roaming the White House and drunk-dialing old pals. Despite his multi-tasking prowess, Nixon’s paranoia and vindictive nature ultimately led to his disgraced ouster from politics.
