Worse than Nixon

Keith Olbermann recently had on John Dean and this is what Dean had to say about the NSA program:
OLBERMANN: Well, to some degree, obviously, this is familiar territory for you, because this seems like a 21st century update on some of the things that Richard Nixon tried in the early ‘70s. What—I‘m almost afraid to ask, what could be next?

DEAN: Well, by Nixon standards, this is not—Bush has so outdone Nixon that Nixon almost looks innocent in this area. We‘re now reaching into such broad scale and widespread programs with just utter in-your-face defiance of the law that even Nixon himself didn‘t push the envelope nearly as far as this administration is.
