Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

When Nixon resigned, everyone gave each other a pat on the back, said "check and balances worked, all is well", and went on about their business as if nothing had happened.

That isn't how I see it. Methinks Nixon's resignation ultimately led to Carter's election, but facing the worsening crisis of the end seventies, people got fed up with reality and gave up, turning to fantasy (Star Wars, disco and pop music, makeup, supply-side economics), and elected Reagan.
