This article presents information on Presidential candidate Richard Nixon. The charming fairy tale about Richard Nixon's entrance into public life is nothing more than a fairy tale after all. As the story goes, a group of 100 public-spirited citizens made a newspaper appeal for a Congressional candidate they could support in the 12th California District in the election of 1946. The young, curly-haired Nixon, then a lieutenant-commander in the Navy, responded by flying home just in time to appear at the 100's last meeting for interviewing prospects. He made his 10-minute pitch, as had other hopefuls, received 88 of the 100 votes and was made the group's unanimous choice for the job.
