James Buckley was elected to the U.S. Senate during the Nixon Administration as the candidate of the Conservative Party of New York.  In the midst of the Watergate Scandal, Buckley broke away from fellow conservatives to call for Nixon's resignation, to avoid the national pain of the impeachment of a sitting President.  Ultimately, Buckley's actions resulted in the resignation of Nixon and the enmity of Buckley's fellow conservatives.  Buckley also the lead petitioner in the case Buckley v. Valeo, which defined modern campaign-finance law.  During the Reagan Administration he served on the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.
