Senator Lowell Weicker during the
Watergate hearings. July 30, 1973.

Senator Weicker was cut from the old cloth of a fiery politician.  When he spoke everyone paid attention, not only for what he said but how he said it.  He provided high theater for the television audience that had front row seats during the entire course of the hearings.  Two television cameras above his head took their aim at witnesses; Weicker himself took a deadlier aim, blasting away mercilessly at Haldeman, Ehrlichman and others, giving no quarter and making it impossible for them to explain away their behavior.
