COLLEGE PARK -  During one preseason practice, Maryland safety Anthony Nixon read the eyes of quarterback Caleb Rowe, jumped in front of wide receiver Levern Jacobs and was in perfect position for an interception in the middle of the field. But the ball bounced off of Nixon's hands and straight into the hands of Jacobs, who turned what should have been a turnover into a long gain. To Terps coach Randy Edsall, those are the plays Nixon needs to make. Edsall refers to Nixon as "Steady Eddie," a solid, dependable player in the back end of Maryland's defense who is entering his third season as the Terps' starting free safety.

In the flurry of new books on the Nixon tapes, another allegation worse than Watergate against the late president has been revisited by a researcher at the Miller Center of the University of Virginia, reviving charges of a possible treasonous act by Richard Nixon during the Vietnam war. Ken Hughes, in "Chasing Shadows: The Nixon Tapes, the Chennault Affair and the Origins of Watergate," makes the case that a planned break-in of the Brookings Institution in Washington, which Nixon urged as a blatant "thievery," sought to find and get rid of such evidence.

WASHINGTON - Ron Ziegler, the White House press secretary who dismissed the 1972 Watergate break-in as a "third-rate burglary" and spent the rest of his tenure trying with denials to save Richard M. Nixon's presidency, was essentially a messenger boy. Mr. Ziegler, who died Monday at 63, attended countless insider meetings at which strategies for dealing with a host of important domestic policy matters were discussed. And although he sometimes put in his 2 cents, he was basically the man assigned to pass the word - first to a press corps Mr. Nixon considered the enemy and later to key aides Mr. Nixon didn't want to face with bad news.

Chicago. -- Repeatedly, just when Richard Nixon seems ready to mount up to a position of restored reputation and honor, an older self comes scampering out of the gutter to remind us of his real nature. The latest such betrayal of Richard Nixon by Richard Nixon was revealed by Seymour Hersh in The New Yorker.What earned headlines was the news that Mr. Nixon commissioned E. Howard Hunt -- working through Charles Colson -- to obstruct justice for political ends when Gov. George Wallace was shot.

On the 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon's resignation as president, his admission of guilt has finally been made public in a 1983 videotaped interview with him by an old White House aide. Speaking of the "smoking gun" White House tape in which he talked about raising hush money for the arrested Watergate burglars, Nixon tells aide Frank Gannon: "This was the final blow, the nail in the coffin. Although you didn't need another nail if you were already in the coffin, which we were.

On the occasion of this week's 40th anniversary of Richard Nixon'sresignation from the presidency, The Washington Post  sponsored a reunion featuring Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Watergate reporters who "brought down" the 37th president. In fact, Nixon committed political suicide. He thought he could get away with what other politicians had done, but forgot the rules are different for Republicans. The Post event resembled a celebration with much laughter and stories about how Publisher Katharine Graham and Executive Editor Ben Bradlee had told the newsroom "no gloating" when it became apparent Nixon would resign.

Not since Richard Nixon assured an audience of newspaper editors in 1973 that "I am not a crook" has a major political figure so conspicuously defended his character as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie has done in declaring, "I am not a bully. " The governor's remark in a mea culpa news conference in Trenton came in the context of the brouhaha over the closing of George Washington Bridge traffic lanes into the town of Fort Lee on the Jersey side. It was ordered by Mr. Christie aides as a vengeful act against the town's Democratic mayor, who had not supported the governor's re-election campaign last year.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor says Republicans will seek to delay a requirement of the 2010 Affordable Care Act that all Americans obtain health insurance or face a tax penalty. "With so many unanswered questions and the problems arising around this rollout, it doesn't make any sense to impose this 1 percent mandate tax on the American people," Mr. Cantor said. While Republicans plot new ways to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, it's easy to forget that for years they've been arguing that any comprehensive health insurance system should be designed exactly like the one that officially began Oct.

The release of the last 340 hours of the Nixon White House tapes adds little to what we know by now about the first American president to resign. Indeed, the final installment doesn't tell us much more than we should have known about him long before the first tapes were ever released. Except for documenting his excessive use of profanity, his contempt for many political figures including those working for him, and his galloping personal insecurity, the real Richard Nixon was always there to be seen.

"Our Nixon," a documentary on Richard Nixon's presidency based on Super 8 home movies made by aides John Ehrlichman, H.R. Haldeman and Dwight Chapin, is the TV surprise and delight of the summer. It premieres at 9 tonight (Aug. 1) on CNN with multiple plays throughout the month. This is absolutely first-rate history that instantly transports you to the tumultuous times of the late 1960s and early '70s when Richard Nixon soared so high and fell so low. I admit I am complete Watergate and Nixon-era junkie, so bear that in mind when you listen to this podcast preview I did for Baltimore's WYPR-FM (88.1)

WASHINGTON -- Richard M. Nixon was a paradox. On the one hand, he was a politician skilled enough to win the richest prize Americans can bestow on anyone. On the other, he was the total antithesis of the backslapping glad-hander -- a man so introverted, private and secretive that he never was able to display warmth publicly or even appear at ease.He sometimes gave you the feeling he would like to break out of the shackles he had fastened on himself but dared not do so lest he destroy some image of himself that he wanted to protect as "a man of extra dimension," a phrase used to describe those he admired.

Just as they say that the poor are always with is, so it is with Richard Nixon, arguably the most tormented American president, who comes back to us in the new book "Ike and Dick" (appropriately subtitled "Portrait of a Strange Political Marriage"). The author, Jeffrey Frank, admirably recalls the awkward relationship between President Dwight D. Eisenhower, the triumphant World War II commander, and his vice president during their eight White House years in the 1950s. Ike comes across as a tolerant and friendly father figure to the brooding and politically intense but ever respectful and almost worshipful Nixon.
