As far as Watergate, Nixon would have been impeached for Abuse of Power because of his efforts to use the wheels of government (like the FBI and CIA) to aid his coverup. He resigned to avoid being impeached, but it probably would have happened.
Obama lied people died.
Nixon lied nobody died (and then he resigned and correctly judged that he was unfit for presidency, unlike another arrogant fool that is on the ballot right now).

If we are speaking legally then Watergate. If we are speaking ethically, the thinking line I chose then Benghazi.
No one died in Watergate, and the administration didn't order the break in. Nixon broke the law by obstructing the investigation after a few of his campaigners took it upon themselves to commit the B&E to look for politically beneficial information.
Benghazi may have been a potentially known terrorist plot. The two SEALS were told to stand down, and apparently military support was called off, four of our fellow citizens were killed as a result and there is some rumblings that Syrian rebels were being equipped with arms and Al Quida got word of this. May not be illegal mind you, but there are some glaring ethical no-nos.
The tie breaker for me was loss of life. So I went with Benghazi.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
