Summary
The Presidents Club, established at Dwight Eisenhower's inauguration by Harry Truman and Herbert Hoover, is a complicated place: its members are bound forever by the experience of the Oval Office and yet are eternal rivals for history's favor. This book examines presidential power within the context of U.S. history and the ongoing relationships presidents and ex-presidents formed with one another

"The news hounds are trying to drive a wedge between us" ; "The man is a congenital liar" -- Kennedy and his club: the hazing. "He had no idea of the complexity of the job" ; "The worse I do, the more popular I get" ; "How about coming in for a drink?" -- Johnson and Eisenhower: blood brothers. "The country is far more important than any of us" ; "I need your counsel, and I love you" -- Nixon and Reagan: the California boys. "You'll have my promise -- I'll speak no evil" -- Johnson and Nixon: two scorpions in a bottle. "This is treason" ; "I want to go; God take me" -- Nixon and Johnson: brotherhood and blackmail. "I want the break-in" -- Nixon and Ford: mercy at all costs. "I had to get the monkey off my back" -- Ford and Reagan: the family feud. "It burned the hell out of me" -- Nixon, Ford, and Carter: three men and a funeral. "Why don't we make it just Dick, Jimmy, and Jerry?" -- Reagan and Nixon: the exile returns. "I am yours to command" -- Bush and Nixon: no good deed goes unpunished. "I'm convinced -- he feels I'm soft" -- Bush and Carter: the missionary goes rogue. "I am a better ex-president that I was a president" -- Six presidents: the golden age of the club. "The guy knows how the game is played" ; "I'm sending Carter. You think it will be OK, don't you?" ; "Bill, I think you have to admit that you lied" -- Bush and Clinton: the rascal and the rebel. "He's never forgiven me for beating his father" -- Bush and Bush: father and son. "I love you more than tongue can tell" ; "Tell 41 and 42 that 43 is hungry" -- Obama and his club: the learning curve. "We want you to succeed."
