Letter: Clinton's historic role

Sir: You report ("Clinton accused", 27 January) that Bill Clinton is "the first Democrat to be elected to a second term since John Kennedy". Similarities there may be between their alleged sexual appetites, but not even the wildest of the JFK myths has him winning a second term from the grave. The better presidential comparison is between Clinton and Nixon: both elected to a second term only to be undone by a "Deep Throat".
