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.
Because the president's press secretary was shot as well. and he said "I'm in control here" - because Bush was out of town as well. I believe he was currently in the air on the way back to DC when Dutch was shot.
