At 1 a.m. on the morning of January 20th, 1973, President Nixon calls Charles Colson from the Lincoln Sitting Room in the White House Residence. This is an incredible call, less than twelve hours before Nixon's second inaugural.
Nixon reads parts of his "acceptance speech" to Colson, explaining that it is his intention to apply the Nixon Doctrine to domestic politics. Mocking Kennedy, he will say: "In our own lives, let each of us ask--not just what Government can do for me, but what I can do for myself."
It is the start of the "me generation" and the beginning of what will become known as the "Reagan Revolution." Listen.
