Richard Nixon was ultimately done in by the White House Plumbers who botched an operation during his reelection campaign and got him thrown out of office. For McCain, it was simpler. It took only one unreliable plumber to help McCain botch Ohio and ultimately the election. Proving again that American presidential politics is never kind phony plumbers. And that in both cases the winner was America herself, which despite it all, has a nose for talent. And, evidently, knows phonies.
