Most Historians rank him close to the bottom of the list.

I think there's a lot of passion about Nixon. He's got good and bad points. His worst points were that he was a crook, statements to the contrary notwithstanding. He was good on foreign policy, he was decent on the economy. If Nixon would have had an honest bone in his body, he would rank as one of the best presidents ever. But he belonged in prison (something he has in common with a lot of other presidents), so I'd say he was probably right in the middle. I'd say FDR, Eisenhower, Lincoln, Washington and Kennedy were the five best presidents, Nixon was number 23, and the last three Republican presidents were at the absolute bottom.

How did US presidents Johnson and Nixon resemble each other in foreign affairs?

Part of the reason that Richard Nixon was elected to the presidency in 1968 was to end the Vietnam War. However, with that said, presidents Johnson and Nixon created for the US congress in foreign affairs a source of comfort and aid to the position of commander in chief. Neither president sought to involve the US congress in major foreign policy decisions. Here Johnson had given Nixon a headstart. The major difference with regards to the Vietnam war was that President Johnson had sought to win the war, while Nixon sought to end the war on his terms if possible.
