A traitor to Nixon? Absolutely. A traitor to his country? Absolutely not. Nixon and his men gave up any right to "loyalty" when the crimes went down. To call him a traitor to Nixon is true, but is roughly the same as the guy at the copy center calling you a traitor because you let the cops know that HE was the one that burnt the place down.
The real question is, if his critics had to pick a side, I wonder how many of them would truly choose to be a traitor to their country rather than their president given the guilt and corruption involved.
Just what we need, Pandora's Box being opened during an election year. All that's needed is for the appeal's court to make a ruling in September or October and the whole Presidential campaign will spin into single issue oblivion.
