The warm President Nixon

Nothing says "compassion" like calling the losing coach of a Big Ten football game. Here, in his own words, is President Nixon outlining to his chief of staff examples of his "warmth":
Incidentally, on the warmth deal, the fact that after the Ohio State Game I called the Coach at Purdue --a team that had lost 8 games this year, and where the Coach is probably on the way out, and told him how I felt he had done an awfully good job under terribly difficult circumstances. This I did not put out and did not try to broker.
See, most presidents only call championship teams. Nixon also points out his way with foreigners:
I have used the Latin phrase to people over and over again "Esta en su Casa", which means, "whenever you are here you are in your own house".
Cuddly indeed.
