Impeachment is off the table after Clinton turned it into a partisan circus and a matter of a blow job and not the integrity of the office. Even with the brokered deal, Nixon had more respect for the office. And clearly, Americans like liars

Nixon was in little to no danger of being removed from office. Heck, he may not even have been found guilty. There was no backroom deal and he wasn't "allowed to resign". He chose to resign to preserve the dignity of the office.
