        But I am willing to bet you and I agree J. Ed would have gleefully abused those agencies had he had the ability to do so. In his own realm he was worse than Nixon, even if for no other reason that he had had so very much more practice. Remember, Nixon twice called JEH into the Oval Office to fire him, and both times JEH walked out still holding his job.

        Anyway, i just watched the DiCaprio movie about Hoover the other day so, y'know ... fresh on the mind.

          and he was worse than the movie. but yes- he would have been worse, had he been president. but nixon was president, and abused his powers in ways even the lesser bush didn't.
