President Nixon has always held a fascination for me. I grew up in the era where he was something of an elder statesman who would make appearances on the Sunday morning talk shows my grandpa watched, but he was still the butt of many jokes. In fact, I remember proudly wearing a "Nixon in '92" T-shirt while my middle school history classes discussed the debates between George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. That long-standing interest (plus Nixon's instantly-recognizable "V for victory"), made our 37th president my first beardless president portrait. Happy Presidents Day!
