If you think Nixon's "lies" about Watergate or Clinton's "misadventure" in the oval office are unique - think again! Even before the age of mass media and instant coverage our founding fathers were busy being human and committing all the seven deadly sins! A hilarious and sometimes serious look at the men who governed ( or attempted to govern) the country and the free world. Barbara Holland pulls no punches! This is a bi-partisan reflection of the humorous, ridiculous and sometimes sad characters who occupied the highest office in the land and some of the people who influenced them. Whether you like it or not history does repeat itself. This book is a worthwhile read and is great fun for those political satirist or for those with just a bit of curiousity or nosiness.
