Nixon more Liberal than Obama?

Fascinating article in Daily Kos. Here’s some of Nixon’s accomplishments (granted, that he had a different Congress):

1969 – Nixon enters peace negotiations with North Viet Nam
1970 – Nixon negotiates permanent deal with USSR not to use Cienfuegos (Cuba) for ballistic missile Submarines
1971 – Nixon increases arms sales and loans to Israel
1972 – Nixon enters into successful SALT talks with USSR
1973 – Nixon withdraws thousands of troops from VietNam, ends draft.
1973 – Nixon agrees to support Israel, begins airlift that allows Israel to counterattack. Nixon and the USSR negotiate a peace protecting Israel and ending the war.

Big sections on domestic policies too. Well worth a read.
