It's rare that anyone in Hollywood has a kind word to share about a Republican, past or present.
This week, House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey surprised an interviewer by toasting arguably the most reviled Republican in recent memory--President Richard M. Nixon.
Spacey is an advocate for governmental arts funding, and when asked which president had done the most toward that effort he gave an unorthodox response.
Richard Nixon. That may be a surprising name for you to hear. But he actually funded the National Endowment for the Arts more than any president had up until that time.
