Declared to syndicated columnist Nick Thimmesch in the winter of 1973, in the midst of the Watergate scandal:

"I am going to stay until 1978. I will have a sense of satisfaction then. Do you know where I will be Jan. 20, 1977? I will be standing on the inaugural platform with the President of the United States, as the new President takes his oath of office. I will look out over those stands and see all of the people. And I will know that I have seen a man under vicious attack show the courage and strength to last it out."
