'Mad Men' new season motif: Richard Nixon Published: April 3, 2014

Political junkies who enjoy "Mad Men" have a special reason to look forward to this month’s start of Season Seven, according to USA TODAY.

One of the new themes of the award-winning show about 1960s America involves one of the strangest and most tragic figures in political history: Richard Nixon.

Remember that Season Six ended in late 1968, right after President Nixon’s election. Also recall that part of the plot of the show’s first season revolved around work that Don Draper’s advertising firm did for Nixon during his 1960 loss to John F. Kennedy.
