R13, neither Pat Nixon nor Bess Truman were "motherly." Neither were Eleanor Roosevelt or Mamie Eisenhower.
Bess hated Washington, kept out of the limelight except when duty obliged her to do something, and stood with her mother as she habitually treated Truman as a sometime failure. Her mother ALWAYS treated Harry like he was a mistake and a loser, even when he was in the White House. The Truman house belonged to Bess and, as an avowed hater of Jews, she refused to ever have one in the house. She may have looked motherly but she was a true "wealthier than her little husband" Midwest cunt. The best thing about her was her discretion, and the second-best thing was having a daughter who sucked up the limelight but became rather wonderful in maturity.
Pat was treated like a cardboard cutout and only had the benefit of being quiet, stalwart, and loyal. Her pathetic alcoholism and long final illness were terrible. Nixon physically abused her, as well.

Slightly off-topic in this thread, but the moral and ethical vacuum that was Robert McNamara ought not be forgotten.
The New York Times deservedly savaged him in 1995 after he published his memoirs of phoney regrets.
"It is important to remember how fate dispensed rewards and punishment for Mr. McNamara's thousands of days of error. Three million Vietnamese died. Fifty-eight thousand Americans got to come home in body bags. Mr. McNamara, while tormented by his role in the war, got a sinecure at the World Bank and summers at the Vineyard.
"His regret cannot be huge enough to balance the books for our dead soldiers. The ghosts of those unlived lives circle close around Mr. McNamara. Surely he must in every quiet and prosperous moment hear the ceaseless whispers of those poor boys in the infantry, dying in the tall grass, platoon by platoon, for no purpose. What he took from them cannot be repaid by prime-time apology and stale tears, three decades late."

Nixon, in fact, was in awe of Connally. It was Big Jawn who he wanted to succeed him when his second term was to end in '77. And Nixon would've nominated him to succeed Spiro Agnew, but there was insufficient support in Congress for a Connally nomination.
