    Thank you, John Rothmann

    I spent a great hour last night with John Rothmann on KGO Radio, 810 AM in San Francisco.

    John is a scholar of presidential history and even worked for Richard Nixon. Off the air, we talked about how Nixon threw out the first ball at Candlestick Park in 1960. John said that the crowd cheered Nixon and booed Pat Brown, the Democrat; two years later, the two men faced off in the California governor’s race, and Nixon was convinced he would win because he was cheered in San Francisco. Of course, Brown won, and the former vice president famously declared, “You won’t have Nixon to kick around any more.”

    You can listen to the interview on KGO’s Web site.
