*Starred Review* Postpresidency, Bill Clinton is as intriguing as ever. Having left office under the cloud of the Monica Lewinksi scandal and his controversial pardon of Marc Rich, Clinton spent a few lonely years in the new family home in Chappaqua, New York. He regained his bearings as a highly paid, extremely popular speaker and executive of a charitable foundation, with wider esteem outside the U.S. than at home. But journalist Felsenthal presents a man haunted by missed opportunities and obsessed with his legacy. She details struggles with his memoirs and his health. She also analyzes Clinton’s prickly relationship with Jimmy Carter, reconciliation with Al Gore, friendship with the first President Bush—solidified by their joint efforts to raise tsunami relief funds—and Clinton’s renewed appeal as a political advisor. His old friends complain that the new FOBs are among the uber-rich who can offer access to corporate jets and money to finance the presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton. Felsenthal, who talked to more than 175 friends, associates, and enemies of Bill Clinton, offers insight into Clinton’s role in the 2000 presidential election and the current election, where he delicately attempts to help his wife without overshadowing her, even amid rumors of continued infidelity and speculation of his role in a Hillary administration. Completely fascinating. --Vanessa Bush --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
