Inauguration: Nixon 's trip from
obscurity to consensus politics
By FRANK CORMIER
Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (P) - Richard
Milhous Nixon, returned from
the p~olitically dead to become
37th President of the United
States, is shunning the contro-
versies of yesteryear in a new
search for consensus.
Marching under the inaugural
banner of "Forward Together,"
Nixon moves into the White
House with the same air of deli-
beration and caution that mark-
ed his election campaign.
To a generation of voters once
removed from those who cast
first ballots in 1968, this stance
seems almost alien to the Nixon
of 15 or 20 years ago known for
his hard-nosed partisanship.

from narrow partisanship is
part of the Nixon phenomenon,
more remarkable is the fact that
he sits in the White House just

After losing the closest presi-
dential election in 76 years to
John F. Kennedy in 1960, Nixon
two years later was defeated for
governor of California. Standing
before television cameras, he

ness of a two-time loser:

The Nixon career has been
marked by obstacles encounter-
ed and, one way or another, ov-
ercome. Although he professes
no fondness for the Horatio Al-
ger-type myth, there is a bit of
that in his past.
His Quaker parents, Frank
and Hannah Nixon, never knew

After a few weeks in the capi-
