At least Nixon had the class and cared too much for this country to fight it out in court. Historians have long said that Joe Kennedy bought that election for JFK.

I could not possibly disagree with you more. There is nothing classy about going along with evil. A fraudulent election MUST be fought, just as corruption everywhere must be fought. If Nixon really cared about the country, he would have exposed the fraud and claimed the victory that was his, as Eisenhower told him he should do. And as President Bush did when they tried to steal the 2000 election from him.
Nixon wasn't classy, he was weak. He didn't want the elite to bad mouth him and so he bowed to social pressure. The country has paid for it, and the fraud has only gotten worse since then and will continue to do so in the future.
John Ashcroft made the same error when he refused to fight for the Missouri Senate seat which he had won. When will these spineless politicians get it through their heads that when they win an election, it is not their personal decision whether to give it away to those who stole it from them through fraud or other wrongdoing.
Now, tell the truth, do you really think that President Bush did the country wrong to "fight it out in court?" Would the country be better off if he had just let Gore steal the election?
