"I come before you tonight as a candidate for the Vice Presidency and as a man whose honesty and integrity has been questioned.

Now, the usual political thing to do when charges are made against you is to either ignore them or to deny them without giving details. I believe we've had enough of that in the United States, particularly with the present Administration in Washington, D.C. To me the office of the Vice Presidency of the United States is a great office, and I feel that the people have got to have confidence in the integrity of the men who run for that office and who might obtain it."

- Richard Nixon

This speech was delivered 23 September 1952.

I love Nixon

Say what you will about Watergate, but Nixon had some great speeches. And this one is excellent. Do you think any politician today would lay down his personal finances like this? This is the sort of straight forward and down to earth honesty that we need in our politicians. No more backstabbing and ignoring accusations. I want more speeches like "Checkers".
