David Gergen on Running the Nixon Speech Writing Team
"You know, when you came back, when you came back in the speech writing process when I was a young lawyer, it was staffed around. I remember the chief justice of the United States at that time in associate council, arguing with Peggy noonan. That was a murderous row of speechwriters over which we had Bill sapphire and Ray Price and Pat Buchanan. And Nixon. Yeah, and then John McLaughlin came in for a lead in the game with Nixon, but he was around for a while. Ben Stein. It was a terrific group. It was about 50 people. If you look at speechwriting and their sports staff and then the research staff and then we also headed the letters and so correspondent section. So it was about 50 people there. And I ran that for a while.

"We had the first round, what was the Randall white? Who was that woman who just put things up? Anyway, they went Dan's what I discovered about government and it's gone with me the rest of my life is part of it is about business and real policy and that's meaningful, but also there's part of it's about showbiz. There's also part of it that is storytelling as you talk about in Hart's touch with fire. You also work for Ford. Now Jerry Ford, Jim Cavanaugh is the chairman of my board at the Nixon library. The chairman of the Ford board. And we've talked a lot about Nixon and Ford and their differences. Jerry Ford could never get elected president from the go. I mean, he could have won reelection. He could have won in 76, had things differently. What'd you do for porg? What did I do before? Well, I stuck around. During the next years, I had become, I was first hired by Ray Price, coming up his assistant ray was running a speech on the show. His speech writing and research. And I was his go to Gopher guy. I was very junior at the time. And anyway, I got promoted up through the ranks and then ray at one point said I'd like to be sort of a senior counselor. And I was asked by bob Paul the man if I would run this speech writing and research shop. So which I did. And for about a year, year and a half and through some pretty tough times as you recall. But any of that. By the time I was sort of in and when Ford came in, they named a replacement for me without asking. And so I immediately was looking around for a job and I called Bill Simon who was treasury secretary and become a friend. And he said, listen, come work for me. So I went over to the Treasury Department for about a year. And over there, they I tried to teach them about politics or at least at least the extent I understood it and they tried to teach me about economics. David, when I read Hart's touch with fire, it's kind of like a diary for me because the wonderful and great Ray Price brought me to San Clemente to be a ghost writer for folks. And then yeah, as mentors, as mentors. And this is a book about mentoring. And so I wanted to bring that up. But I also want people to know, I went to work in The White House as a young lawyer for Fred fielding in the Reagan years, but you were kind of higher in the chain of command. I'd see you in the mess, but I wouldn't talk to you because you didn't talk to the people here. Tell us, tell us what you did in the Reagan years. Well, in the 40 years, eventually, you know, let me tell you one little forge story. Please. You have time. Oh, yes. So Ford, as you recall, this is a real story about a stab, actually. As you recall, Ford was given, when I went back to I was invited by Ford to come back John rumsfeld and Dick Cheney reached out. So come on back to The White House under four, which I did. And I was sort of named, I don't know, some adviser to the president. I was still very fairly junior. And any event, the speechwriting process and there was excruciating because the way we would review for speech where the president was about to make was on Mondays, we would get together and we have all the speech that he was going to give that week. We'd have drafts. And we sit down and nobody had ever seen except in the speed train stat. Nobody ever seen the speeches until we got into that meeting, and then the way we critiqued his speech was we would everybody would go to page one of the speech and we'd read it for the first time. And then we would make comments about where what needed to be changed. Then we go to page two and page three. It was excruciating. I couldn't stand it because we never read the full speech. We had no idea where the speech was going. And it was like, and we wound up and giving a lot of speeches were sort of one syllable speeches. Dick and Jane, and so but anyway, after we left The White House after Ford was back into private life. About 6 or 8 months in. I got a call from his office. Saying, president of course, got a speech he needs to make. He's got a draft. Do you like the look at the draft? Can he call you at home tonight? I said, sure. So I got to speech. It was elegant. Elegant, three, four syllable words, well constructed, very persuasive. And so I thought it was a beautiful speech. The only problem is it's not a Ford speech. It's not see dick run. So he called me that night. And he said, well, what'd you think? And I could hear him puffing away on his pipe. And I said, well, mister president, it's very good speech, but it's not your speech. Do you want me to rewrite it in your hand in your way of thought? And he started chuckling as he had, and I said, well, what's happening? He said, actually, David, this is the first time I've had space in my life. For a number of years, I could really write my own speech. This is it. And I thought, oh my God, for the last 12 to 18 months, we've been having this guy give terrible speeches in our heads as they were way.

"Okay. Why does Hitler kill himself? I don't know. He got his gas bill. All right. Check that is terrible. You know, David, you also listen to talk radio. And there are a couple of stories in here where you do not name. I know who says my friends before every ad. I know who let the creep of embedded advertising into radio. And it's everywhere now. You listen very well. How's it doing? 'cause you know, I'm no longer on it when you can hear me. I'm on now from three to 6 in the morning out in LA. You can't hear me anymore, unless you're just like completely up at the dawn or you're listening on the podcast. But it used to be a regular listener. How do you think talk radio is doing in the new age? I think it's doing, I think it's doing great. But you know, talking about a lot of my book is trying to figure out what is true, right? What is actually true? What do I know that's true and the old as an official Barkley said, the test of truth is what I trust my life to it, right? So what I'm trying to figure out is what is true. And the other test that I know what is true is the old boy scout test. I was the boycott loved the boys codes. My dad was an employee in American. And the pest is, I can't leave the fire until it's out. Until the fire is absolutely out. So the question is, how do I tell them for fire absolutely out? And the answer is, can I hold the ashes in my hand? So that's the test of truth. So people say, it's true that there's no such thing as a man or a woman. And a lot of people hold that for various reasons. But nobody believes that so the question is not, is it true that there's no such thing as a man or a woman, everybody knows the answer to that, although it might be inconvenient for state, but the question is what is true? And the answer is truth is what you trust your life care. That is, that's not in a book and maybe you need another book. I want to read page one 25. I find myself you right. Today in a beach chair, with a Negroni. My reminisce is leading me to similarly wondering as Tolstoy did. What have I done? So how do you answer that question, David Matt? Well, what I've done is, you know, like they say, if you bring a child up in the ways of the lord, he will not depart from it when he is old, right? Right. But they don't say what he's going to do in the middle. So, you know, I'm getting up on 75 years old. I've had a phrase call, I've had a less of life and wonderful children, an angel of a wife, and I've spent my time writing from the time I was a little kid. And I thought that I was going to end up under a bridge because I never studied and everyone told me I was stupid. So I said, oh, I get it. I'm going to end up looking under a bridge. That's a shame, but I can do that. I didn't realize not only that there was such a thing as being a playwright, but that there was such a thing as a good life. I didn't realize that. And I was blessed with by circumstance and by talent. And by God, with finding out that society in that day and today, in ways which I'm not quite sure of their identity, but they must exist, said to certain people, you know what, stop flowing the field, sit over there on a rock and tell us a funny story. That's a good thing. That's a good thing. Tell us a funny story. I want to say anyone who moves the river of the language even a little bit. Wag the dog. Well, that happened, or my favorite, put down, put that copy down copy it for closures. If you've moved the river of the language a little bit, it's been a significant life, but that doesn't tell you if it's been a good life. What tells you if it's been a good life? Oh, excellent. So the question is, I wrote a book a book for kids with my friend Donald soul for wonderful painter, wonderful Peter Donald sold them. And illustrated book by about compartments for the kid wants to have a bar mitzvah. And she's really confused. And he says his grab by doesn't help him and he doesn't understand what his railway saying and his parents don't help him. And he sits down and he talks to this and he happens to be called, you can watchmaker who's the Jewish story or myth of the 36 just man. There's also 36 trust men. Some of them could be men or women. Nobody knows who they are. But they're set here to save the world. They have a name, don't they? Don't they have a name? I guess the fact the just. They do, but escapes me. Because Ray Price had a great compliment played to him as my mentor. He wasn't Joyce said you're one of these 36 and he told me the name I can never remember, but continue, please. The watchmaker is talking to the sitting with the watchmaker and the kid has sort of watchmakers of course use we talk to each other in terribles. That's how Jerry's talk, right? We call them jokes. But they're terrible. So for example, let me remind you about the watch marks. There's almost talk about geniuses because I revered Jews. I don't worship them because I'm the barred by doing so because I'm a Jew. I will not I would gladly accept Jesus for my personal savior. But I can't because I'm a Jew. So that's one of the costs of being a Jew, right? So I see the things that Jesus says, he says that you're just somebody hit me on the cheek, what should I do, turn the other cheek? If they do so how does somebody put my hook what should I do, give me your card? Jesus, I don't know how much I should give to charity. If everything you have, right? So these are extraordinarily Jewish responses because they make you think, right? They cause you to think under the same responses that we find in a hasidic literature. And in jokes. They said, wait a second. I got to stop for a second and think about that. So that the parables of Jesus, the parables and the Torah, the Old Testament. There are myths that meant to make us faith. Right, cement to stop the process and say, wait a second. God says Abraham pick your son up and kill him. That can't be right. And Abraham says I will and the son agrees. That can't be right. And then God stops his hand. Well, that makes sense, but the story is troubling..

"Four. Yeah yeah growing up. We grew up second kind of thing a bluegrass kinda like bluegrass. Kinda like country. Music were blues is soul music kind of popular to an extent but in general is coming. Mars lives in the corner from not being as modern as without. You know what i mean. Yeah that's a perfect analogy. I mean it's for country folk. The country of the countries all in this case and confined like no labels and festivals. Not so much like no out. In the top forty you know but that it filled unopposed a piece of the puzzle for me because up reading about people like bill monroe and flat and scruggs. They would be sort of shunted off into the bluegrass chapter but they would mention how all these hits and they were on the ground a la brea and stuff and and it just didn't quite tie but when you hear these mixes of song radio chart hits country. Radio chart hits from the late forties fifties into the early sixties. The bluegrass too blend in pretty well. Because you know you're pretty raw country hikes senior ray price etcetera and and you know fits seamlessly in after the mid sixties there kind of exiled and it's people like the new lost city ramblers. Who are coming out of the urban fulcher vibe. These guys are the ones who were the most focused on really reviving the harry smith anthology american music which is honestly just a sampler of commercial blues and country records you know he redefined stuff is folk music that had originally been seen as commercial music when it was released and the new lost city. Ramblers took it real serious. Did real good versions and they brought mother may to the newport folk festival which opens the floodgates for these bluegrass artists to go to these folk festivals. Start planning to college campuses and quote. Bluegrass band began to create create. Its own world with the exception of flattened scruggs who have a massive number one hit country hit and a pop hit. I don't think it's a number one. Pop hit but it was a big hit with the beverly hillbillies theme song in nineteen sixty three to sixty seven with the thing with the foggy mountain breakdown. 'cause that was used as theme the to the bunny quite exactly the the warren beatty faye dunaway. Just a classic movie that was absolutely on the cutting edge at the time.

"Anderson's grace hits album the very first one you know and i'm like wow there's something there you know still kind of still kind of wimpy but maybe because he's on decca hit a little bit harder than had a right to you know yeah and i wondered if his limitations singer wasn't why he wasn't the one who did city lights for example like I mean maybe it was his career placement. He roy ray prices obviously bigger you. So i just kind of made me wonder if that whispering bill thing was just a way to get around his limitations as a singer but we also should bring up ray price because they talk about him and it's very important that he was the one guy who wrote out the rockabilly era. Even the leuven brothers have electric cars on their records of this period and right price is keeping the fiddles front and center and totally the representative be champion of hardcore country to this whole period with the legendary texas shuffle and so definitely wanna mention price who Redan thing about it. You know that that that walking bass yeah. Yeah it's it's yeah it's it's even as much is that they were talking about He's mr hardcore country and he is with the arrangements but his songs in his beats are innovative and and being in the shuffle pattern from the blues. So even mr pure is not quite so pure and of course ironically growing up my best friend. Danny's dad who had this great fifties record collection of chuck berry and hank williams and george johnson introduced us to so much stuff and he would tell us about that heartbreaking day when ray price sold out my country politics so but but the reason that hurts so much because there's this period in the fifties when right price was was absolutely carrying the torch for pure hardcore country and keeping it going. But we'll talk about that sixties period. Next time when we continue our discussion of kim burns country any final thoughts on this episode. James oppose pretty cool. I mean this kind of crossover period always fascinate me. You know in a lot a lot of ways. Of course a lot of crossover crossover hit the nearly get around to like. I mean big bad john by jimmy dean who admittedly. I wasn't a fan of that song but most most of the things i've heard by him. nearly nearly light rain belts for me. You know but that song in his delivery you know so powerful you know on also like who else would say would they to say the word hell twice on record in nineteen sixty one. Yup yup yup yup that was a pretty bold controversial thing and asserted also mentioned. I don't know if i mentioned before that. Talk about roger miller and they also talk about roger millar.

"Columnist of that era on a man of the left in New York, a set of Richard Nixon that he had the best political antenna that kempton had ever seen and he gave an example that when he talked to Nixon very early on about John Lindsay, that Nixon dismissed Lindsay's future and said, no, in four years, he'll be gone. It'll be a Democrat. There's no future for him. On the path he's on. It sounds like Nixon just had this tremendous strategic sense informed by a real eye for detail on things like politics or sports. It's a very interesting aspect of his character. I think you put your finger on it. And it is, it is so profoundly him that it was hard for him to get people to look beyond that. Everybody thought he was just totally obsessed by the politics that he was ruthless that he was brilliant at it, except when it came ultimately ultimately to his himself in the Watergate scandal. But he had this acute ability to observe a political situation. But there was so much more. And he wasn't just a, I guess to continue with an answer to your question. What did I take away? I didn't know him for the Lake, nor in the depth that a pap Buchanan knew him from the right. Nor that a Ray Price, doing no relation who was his chief speechwriter. Nor Dwight Chapin who was his appointment secretary for years and who will have a book coming out about Nixon in winter coming up this gummy winner. I didn't know him in either the depth or over the duration of those folks. But I had an instinct about him. And it was that yes, he was a man of this intense ambition. This acute talent for tactics and as I say, ruthlessness. But underlying that seems to be some sense of purpose. Some sense, which I'm convinced he took with him from his Quaker background that he needed to leave something behind him that had been worthwhile. And he you've read the book in the book. I note that as he left, he referred to his mother Anna as a saint, and almost broke down. And people would tend to scoff at that and just say, well, he was either, you know, just trying to make political capital out of it or being extreme about it. But it was really true. I mean, he, I think, had a sense from her that life had a purpose. And he was meant to deliver on it. And I think operating at some somewhat below the surface level was this gyroscope. Which caused him to keep thinking about what he should be doing that would not just on the foreign policy side, but in people's lives. Make it a little better. Interesting if I could make the point. Pat Buchanan, whose book, White House wars is in a way a counterpoint to mind. And as I say, patent doing a lot longer and a lot closer than I ever will ever came..

Well, as far as far is just late night to make Carson was the king and he was his a very screwed up person personally, but on stage I don't think anyone could touch him. I think he was just the best. And I thought that even when he was a game show host before he got the Tonight show gig. And I don't think anybody's come close to him as far as that goes, But the variety shows there are so many of them the problem with him very often. It was dependent on who the guests were going to be that weak, But there were literally dozens of Yeah. I mean, it's seldom was very good.

I'm like, Oh, God. Spare me So some of those were interesting, but the sure the seasonal stuff the Christmas stuff, you know? Miss. Uh, I missed some early television. Of course. I love this stuff that was live. But that was local, for the most part. But even so, the national stuff when the season went from September through about Mayor June, and you had your Christmas time off, and then you had your summer replacements, and there were there were a ton of tasty shows in that. Yeah, And I don't think you felt too many remix like he remakes being being done right now.

I like the 80. Syriza's, too. I didn't see much, but I never really had a TV. But when I worked at radio stations that were am FM TV combos. Invariably I'd sit in the lobby and watch the TV. But there's about my exposure to it. But, yeah, the equalizer in the eighties was a great show. I thought Yeah, I never watched it because I was watching stuff like Miami Vice and some other other stuff. I would've watched. Why definitely loved anything like technology like Blue Thunder Night, Right? Air walk. I loved all those shows.

"Anyway, I'm very thankful that I'm able to make living doing this number one and number two very thankful that I came along time this period when some Bob Dylan had sort of single handedly elevated pop music to art form by the by the force of lyrics. I really truly believe that this moment when Bob Dylan wants to be John Lennon and John Lennon wants to be Bob Dylan makes rock and roll art overnight. And otherwise, it's just about cars and girls, and I grew up with that music. That's the music. You know, I didn't know that. There was any injued Bob zones on the Johnny cash show. And so is Merle haggard. And I grew up in Texas, and I grew up with a lot of danceable country music too. You know, 'cause everybody that I saw in country bands Santana been Ray Price's band at one time or another including Johnny Bush and Darrell McCall and. Nelson. So you talk about when Dylan and cash in rock and roll those worlds didn't meet much until then right? No. I don't believe they did. I mean, look I got into this kind of war with with Peter grounded kind of quiet work on a panel on together. Once because he doesn't seem to be on that big of a deal. And he his argument is that Robert Johnson was as good as Bob Dylan, you know, and other people it's Rob Johnson. It is about the songs. Trust me. They were tar players that were as good as Robert Johnson was whatever he went to the cross of soda so forth. You know skip James must've showed up right behind it. Their other catastrophes are just as good, but he wrote every single song that the modern blues based on. And then he wrote him as far as we know. There are no earlier versions. I it's pretty original. It's kind of like bluegrass Bill Monroe singlehandedly. Invented something. Well, Rob Johnson did too. But he was a natural. He did it. And he was just trying to make pop records. That's what people don't get about it. He was just trying he played dances. And he played he was playing the inner taint people in the pickup girls. Co porter the same thing. This was a guy that could have been professor could have been writing novels could have been writing poetry, but he decided to write pop music, and he he applied this really high of literary skill, but he was storming. You know, Bob did it on purpose. Bob. You know, he wasn't the only person in the village figured out. They could write their own folksongs play hundred euro sounds. He was Paxton figured it out the same time few other people did but Bob was better everybody else. And he just he was a sponge he read all the right stuff. He listened all the records stolen. He had to. And he knew he was Bob Dylan. Do you think of Bob Dylan songs as songs of empathy like, find them more imagery? I'm not sure that I empathize with like a role in there. So convoluted there moments where I feel emotion, but I don't they're not the character songs for the wealth for the most part. I mean, ballot thin Mandar. They're just I believe they are there.

It was impressed. The people he was around with with imagery that that that hearken to French poets, for instance, like the difference between towns and Bob more than anything else. Influences towns listening to really convention lyric poets, he was into Robert frost and Shakespeare and Baba's into fringe poets and the beats so get seems convoluted to some people, but the more you listen to the moors there and all he was doing was flexing his muscles..
