Tim Naftali

How does the contentious 2016 election compare to 1968? Does either—or both—candidate share characteristics with Richard Nixon? Tim Naftali is a former director of the Nixon Presidential Library and Museum and now clinical associate professor of history and public service at New York University and a regular CNN contributor. He is the author of many articles and books on national security, intelligence, and presidential history.


Was 2016 a rerun of 1968?
