- 20th Century with Mike Wallace: Presidents in Crisis: Johnson Quits and Nixon Resigns VHS
Vietnam forced America to search its soul. It also led directly to the downfall of one president, and indirectly to another's Waterloo. Using footage from the CBS News Archives and extensive interviews with reporters and Washington insiders, THE 20th CENTURYTM traces the events that led Lyndon Johnson not to seek re-election and Richard Nixon to resign.
In 1968, the war in Vietnam dominated American life and politics. As public support eroded, President Johnson steadfastly maintained that we were winning, but the Tet Offensive exposed the truth. Beaten down by the war, Johnson shocked the nation by announcing he would not seek re-election. His successor, Richard Nixon, attempted to deal with Vietnam by forming a secret White House task force called "The Plumbers" to stop leaks about the war. But their incompetent attempt to break into the Democratic National Headquarters led Nixon to throw up a wall of lies and denial about his involvement. When he was finally forced to turn over audiotapes that revealed the extent of his knowledge, Congress geared up for impeachment proceedings. Ever the fighter, Nixon resisted the inevitable as long as possible before giving up the office he had schemed his whole life to win.

With extensive commentary from Mike Wallace and the reporters who covered these historic events as they unfolded, THE 20TH CENTURYTM revisits the tumultuous months that shaped Nixon's reputation. Watch the historic reports that brought news of the Watergate break-in to the public and hear from scholars how the nation is still shaped by the complicated legacy of this brief time when America saw the best and worst of its government embodied in one man. 50 min.
