Bernstein is not the only person bringing up Watergate to describe Clinton. His partner-in-exposing-crime, Bob Woodward, is also fond of comparing Clinton to Nixon. Woodward, who appears often on Fox News shows to discuss Clinton's recent travails—her appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, controversial donations to the Clinton Foundation, the investigation into her use of a private email server as secretary of state, and her refusal to release transcripts of her Wall Street speeches—has on multiple occasions given into the temptation to talk about Watergate.

Woodward and Bernstein Can't Stop Comparing Hillary Clinton to Richard Nixon | Mother Jones

Both carry an arrogant personality believing they are above the law or being treated like commoners. Both are disliked. You talk to Hillary supporter and donors, most do not like her personally. This is very rare in a president. Obama, Bush, B Clinton all had likable personalities - someone that you would want to have a beer with.

IMO both bring out the worse in human nature. She operates on a level beneath humans. She appeals to people's fears and insecurity. I'm not sure even Hillary supporters who vote and donate money to her feel good about doing so. Hillary has a goblin/leprechaun type personality that make you want to take a shower after hearing her speak. I wouldn't be surprised if she bad bad body odor in real life. She has a real life witch-type personality.

I wish. If you look outside of Nixon's perfect unlikeableness, he was actually a pretty decent president by modern standards. Terrifying to say, but true.
