Mrs. Nixon was being interviewed for a magazine story in the living room area of the family quarters on the second floor of the White House.  Many women of the press shared with me the feeling that she was their favorite First Lady.  Some of the questions amused her, and she laughed freely.  However when asked what had been the hardest time of her political life with the President, she said it was when he was defeated for the presidency in November 1960.  She was devastated for all the people who had worked so     hard on his behalf.  She became very sad at that moment; I could see tears in her eyes.
