Trivia Question: What is the name of the cocker spaniel that Richard Nixon made a famous speech about while campaigning for the American presidency?
Richard Nixon’s “Checkers” speech is regarded as his best use of rhetoric. The impassioned address told of how the Nixon family was given a dog by a political ally. Using Checkers as an example, Nixon tried to quash accusations that he was being given major political gifts as a form of corruption.
Founder of IHP, husband to a great wife (my best friend), and dad to 5 wonderful kids. Big fan of history, quizzes, and just about anything trivia related. I also enjoy reading biographies, non-fiction, and fiction (fantasy novels). My other hobby is board games and in my opinion there is nothing better than a family board game night!
