Nixon was elected to the Senate in 1950, but only served two years when he was elected Ike's VP.


He beat Helen Gahagen Douglas, Melvyn Douglas's wife, in a senate race offering as much choice as Bush-Kerry.


It is all coming back to me... the race against Helen Gahagen Douglas permanently endeared Nixon to the left, since they accused him of red-baiting forever after. Something about pink mailers, or some such.

Was Nixon truly a social loner, or is the idea of his being a social loner simply a result of people intensely disliking him? (Witness the wildly divergent portraits of GWB's personality).
