"“But there were too many times where I saw [his son, President George W. Bush,] over that time where he was less than statesmanlike,” he laughed."

It's a good thing that he didn't hang around for Zero. That would have been a real eye opener for him!

“Nixon would line up empty $300 bottles of wine, then take out “a funnel and a jug of Carlo Rossi and fill them up with wine to serve to the guests,” Smith said, laughing. He said he saw Nixon do this about 20 times. Nixon would wink at Smith as he watched guests ooh and ahh over the cheap stuff, thinking it was high grade. “

For some reason this pleases me. Maybe I should dislike Nixon for it, but instead I am amused.

So the retirement of the WH pianist was ....(drumroll).... Bush’s fault (grin).

Love the Nixon story.
