Definiendo a Nixon sin querer hacerlo...

Cosas que uno escucha en la tele, y tiene que mirar en internet porque no se cree lo que acaba de oir. Lo peor es cuando uno descubre que entiende el inglés perfectamente. Entrevistaban hoy al ex-secretario de estado y miembro de la administración Nixon Lawrence Eagleburger en Crossfire, y la cosa iba como sigue:

CARVILLE: the distinguished, superb former secretary of state, former Nixon administration official, Lawrence Eagleburger.

LAWRENCE EAGLEBURGER, FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE: You had to say that, didn't you?

CARVILLE: It was on the prompter, Mr. Secretary. And I might add Reagan administration and Bush administration and every other administration, too.

WATKINS: OK. Secretary Eagleburger, this is the million dollar question. I mean, folks have been waiting for three decades to know who Deep Throat was or is. Is Mark Felt, in your opinion, Deep Throat?

EAGLEBURGER: Probably.

WATKINS: Do you think he's Deep Throat?

EAGLEBURGER: Probably. You know, President Nixon once suspected him. I'm surprised he didn't end up dead somewhere because of that.

Santo varón, ese Nixon. Y aún se preguntan si Mark Felt hizo bien o no soltando chivatazos...
