The unifying theme throughout is that nearly all of the characters discussed were dysfunctional individuals seeking to enhance their images through White House perks, were power hungry, rarely knew what they were doing and were overall jerks.
These people were barely able to manage their own lives and it is mind boggling to know that these are the men and women who created foreign and domestic policy. It confirms my belief that America is great because of its citizens. Once the people cease to be good then America will cease to be great.
I highly recommend this book and am surprised that is not more well known.
