BT, Nixon ran on law and order, and state's rights. true.

But he also ran against George McGovern (war hero, and apparently a very nice man, but not known for foreign policy, etc) and Edwin Muskie (another good man, in fact a friendly acquaintance of my father's - I met Ed Muskie when I was 8 or 9 - but a man who wasn't ready for the mudslinging of national level politics, and one from a small state to boot).

So you may be oversimplifying just a bit.
