I vaguely remember that during the Watergate saga, there was a list of Richard Nixon's "20 enemies", made by his close aide Charles Colson.

What was the context on which the list was written? The electoral campaign or afterwards?
Who were these "enemies"?

Thanks in advance for your response.

I knew nothing about a specific number "20"--but the enemies list was well-known at the time.

For some reason, the link for the Wikipedia article doesn't work.

Go to this page, which for some reason is not called an "encyclopedia article."

I searched on wikipedia, found nothing and then said to myself: "Setanta must know!"

Alas.

Thank you, boss.

You're welcome, Boss . . . personally, i am continually amazed at the wealth of content at Wikipedia. I used them like a card index--they have links to other sources, and they help me make sure i've got the right spelling or the right name. I think of Wikipedia as a launch pad . . .
