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 anti-deficit crusade, health reform failure, anti-terrorist 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
