Summary
While still a sitting president, Bill Clinton initiated a project to preserve for historians an unfiltered record of presidential experience. Clinton talks intimately over seven years to his long-time friend, a Pulitzer Prize-winning historian, about what it's like to be president, highlighting major events from Clinton's two terms, including war in Bosnia, the antideficit crusade, health reform failure, antterrorist strikes, peace initiatives, the 1996 re-election campaign, and Whitewater investigations culminating in his 1999 impeachment trial. -- Publisher description
Summary
Recounts the intimate talks the author shared with the forty-second president during the latter's two terms in office, sharing his perspective on Clinton's private torments, family life at the White House, and presidential challenges
