    I did get a chance to sit down and read this over Christmas. It’s an engrossing book.

    Although it is naturally dominated by Clinton’s personality, I found Taylor Branch’s afterword interesting. Branch says that when he and Clinton went their separate ways in ’72, he went into journalism because he was disillusioned with politics. But after seeing behind the scenes during Clinton’s presidency, he came to feel that the journalists were more cynical and caused more trouble than the politicians have.

    There’s also a lot of interesting material in the book about how we can capture the details of a presidency for future historians in the face of conflicting legal requirements.
