    Hopefully he'll be impeached before there's a need to name anything after him.
    Before a portrait in the gallery.
    Before there's a statue..

    How many American institutions were named after Nixon?

    Both Richard M. Nixon Elementary School in Hiawatha, Iowa and Nixon Elementary School in Landing, N.J. were named while Nixon was still in office, and they've both kept their names in the more than four decades since, despite occasional pushes for change.


    Then there is his Library and of course Milhouse from the Simpsons.

    Trump should be so lucky.

    Well if the FBI clears him, it would be appropriate to rename their building after him, replacing J. Edgar Hoover.

    It could feature the book he read, too.

    I wonder how the school's history teachers portray the school namesake.

    Nixon's middle name was 'Milhous', without the terminal 'e' . . .

    Not that it matters.
