Nixon was concerned about his political standing and Congress could still do something, which they did. The situation is different with the Bush Administration. They changed the rules which we was recently reflected in his statement that no one could tell him what to do "in my government."
I also remembered the act of turning away anytime they appeared, including on TV.
I think the effort is worthwhile, nonetheless. Listening to most media sources, antiwar efforts are still labeled as "radical left- wing" and marginalized. Demonstrations are covered adequately, most major musicians have got an antiwar song or album on the market as well. The popular culture has been there for some time, it just hasn't been focused into a singular message that's hard to ignore.
It's going to take a lot more this time to be heard.
