Just wondering

Gerald Ford seems to be being praised mainly for his wonderful decision to pardon Richard "I am not a crook!" Nixon at the close of Watergate.

I wonder, though, if Nixon had been tried and convicted, whether we might have been spared imperial presidencies such as that of George W. Bush. Maybe these men might not have thought that they were above the law, that they were invincible.
