    OK, in that context, he is explaining that he has considerable experience.

    Nixon is

    "When it comes to experience, through the years I have sat on the National Security Council, (space required after a comma) I have met with the legislative leaders ..."
    I assume someone had asked him about his relevant experience so he refers to that subject with "When it comes to experience ...".

    Look at my other corrections to your post above, in red.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
