This photo — it’s vintage President Nixon. Surrounded by his inner circle. You don’t see him in sweatpants, or joking with the press. You see the faces, the expressions. Nixon is separate, behind a desk. You’ve got the cigarettes on the desk — of course, there’s no smoking on board today.
You see each president’s personality come out when they’re on board — you see who they are. And President Nixon wasn’t someone who really let his guard down, even on Air Force One, whereas other presidents would, as you see in the other photographs.
Let’s move on when you’re ready — and I’ll introduce you to President Johnson.
