I like this episode. I love that so many episodes involve Richard Nixon. I also like Jack Johnson and "bitter rival" John Jackson. Anyway overall I'd rate it a B+, perhaps an A-. Also when Bender sells his body to a pawn shop. I like some lines like "I've got a plan" "I've got a better plan" and "We may as well hand my head in for the 5c deposit" "No! I wouldn't give up my friends head. Not for 5c, not for 500c!" and "My God that's what I sound like? I thought I had more of a Clark Gable quality"one more when leela says "Oh crud. I knew there was somethiobng I had to do today!" when Nixon wins the election.

Before he died, Nixon was the most made-fun-of political figure in The Simpsons. Bringing him back was brilliant.

I don't know how anyone can NOT love this episode. It is the first episode in the entire series that can be described as "simply amazing" or "perfect". And it truly is both those things.

Full of satire, wit and a lot of in-jokes for people familiar with Nixon, although the body-less Bender subplot runs out of steam quite quickly

A lot of great jokes can be found here, but this episode leaves a lot to be desired in the plot department. Although, thanks to this episode, Nixon was established as Earth president which gave the show a lot of material for later episodes.

A decent episode, but nothing too special. Nixon's introduction is good, and there are some laugh-out-loud moments (telling Checkers to shut up is so unexpected and hilarious that it always makes me guffaw), but it's by no means a favorite episode of mine.
