Notes and Comment

July 1973
New Yorker;7/2/1973, Vol. 49 Issue 19, p21
The article comments on factors that make extreme partisanship in the Watergate investigation unlikely. Democrats are expected to benefit in keeping U.S. President Richard Nixon in office. As a discredited President he could do little besides serve as a sort of caretaker while Congress runs the nation. Republican legislators have little reason to defend the President after he ignored and belittled Congress and refused to consult his own party leaders in making major decisions.
