    This is the second in what I assume is a trilogy on Bill Clinton Having read the first a few years ago, I was looking forward to the next one I only have a vague memory of his early first term, but I was surprised to be reminded of how chaotic his beginnings were, how laughable the management of something as huge as the White House was and how nuch of a learning curve both he and his team underwent On the other hand, I was reminded of how inspiring he could be with his ability to empathize an This is the second in what I assume is a trilogy on Bill Clinton Having read the first a few years ago, I was looking forward to the next one I only have a vague memory of his early first term, but I was surprised to be reminded of how chaotic his beginnings were, how laughable the management of something as huge as the White House was and how nuch of a learning curve both he and his team underwent On the other hand, I was reminded of how inspiring he could be ...

    A fairly balanced review of the accomplishments and foibles of Bill Clinton during his time in office From the shaky start to a cabinet running on cylinders to coming off the rails morally as he struggled with personal daemons and running the country.

    This book comes across as an honest take on the first 4 years of the Clinton presidency I appreciated the author s candid description of the failures of the Clintons in the first two years of his time in office, while also highlighting their triumphs in the next two years I also appreciated the use of various viewpoints from those who were involved in the decision making processes I was able to take on a new understanding of Hilary s strange approach to her role as the First Lady, as well a This book comes across as an honest take on the first 4 years of the Clinton presidency I appreciated the author s candid description of the failures of the Clintons in the first two years of his time in office, while also highlighting their triumphs in the next two years I also appreciated the use of various viewpoints from those who were involved in the decision making processes I was able to take on a new understanding of Hilary s strange approach to her role as the First Lady, as well as the madness that took place in the establishment o...

    This book makes me sad that there s no Nigel Hamilton book on Clinton s second term at least not yet I learned a lot The book does seem to have a left wing bias, though not enough that I found it particularly troubling Hamilton sure loves his metaphors Occasionally I really enjoyed them such as his lengthy description of an interview with Clinton by Tom Brokaw as a boxing match complete with punches and counterpunches Brokaw ends up on the mat But at other times they were just plain be This book makes me sad that there s no Nigel Hamilton book on Clinton s second term at least not yet I learned a lot The book does seem to have a left wing bias, though not enough that I found it particularly troubling Hamilton sure loves his metaphors Occasionally I really enjoyed them such as his lengthy description of an interview with Clinton by Tom Brokaw as a boxing match complete with punches and counterpunches Brokaw ends up on the mat But at other times they were just plain bewildering, a...
