    I would have given this 3 1 2 stars if that had been an option For a conservative republican like myself, this might seem like a weird book choice, but I found it to be an interesting view of what went on in the Clinton White House It didn t make me like the Clintons anyor less, but it helped give me a better understanding of who they are I found Stephanopoulos surprisingly honest about his faults which I appreciated Had the whole book been about how wonderful he was while working in t I would have given this 3 1 2 stars if that had been an option For a conservative republican like myself, this might seem like a weird book choice, but I found it to be an interesting view of what went on in the Clinton White House It didn t make me like the Clintons anyor less, but it helped give me a better understanding of who they are I found Stephanopoulos surprisingly honest about his faults which I appreciated Had the whole book been about how wonderful he was while working in the White House I probably wouldn t have believed what he wrote Because he was able to point out his mistakes and make honest assessments of his shortcomings I was able to trust when he did write about the positive things he did I think when reading material like this you always have to keep in mind that this is the way one person viewed things, it doesn t mean that s exactly how it happened, it s just how they saw it happen and their take on it Reading this did re affirm for me that politics is a dirty business

    There was so much to enjoy in this I flew through it Descriptions of Bill and Hillary s relationship were real and fascinating and I loved how Stephanopoulos freely acknowledged the effect of his work on his mental health This was such a fascinating look into the interplay between Clinton s personal problems and his political goals particularly interesting to read about Dick Morris s frightening influence over Clinton I couldn t get through Clinton s autobiography of his time as President There was so much to enjoy in this I flew through it Descriptions of Bill and Hillary s relationship were real and fascinating and I loved how Stephanopoulos freely acknowledged the effect of his work on his mental health This was such a fascinating look into the interplay between Clinton s personal problems and his political goals particularly interesting to read about Dick Morris s frightening influence over Clinton I couldn t get through Clinton s autobiography of his time as President it was too meandering and each chapter told about a trillion stories Stephanopoulos book is how Clinton s should have been written It gives sufficient detail about legislative fights and scandals borne by the Clinton administration, but doesn t lose you in a vortex along the way I loved the last line too if only this good President had been a better man Perfect summary

    George Stephanopoulos was an essential part of Bill Clinton s first presidential campaign, and of his white house staff during the first term In this book, Stephanopoulos recounts what it was like being such a crucial adviser and his experiences working for the Clintons There is also a bit in the beginning about about how George got into politics in the first place.I found this book fascinating for the first half, and then it seemed to drag a little bit But this reflects his experience the George Stephanopoulos was an essential part of Bill Clinton s first presidential campaign, and of his white house staff during the first term In this book, Stephanopoulos recounts what it was like being such a crucial adviser and his experiences working for the Clintons There is also a bit in the beginning about about how George got into politics in the first place.I found this book fascinating for the first half, and then it seemed to drag a little bit But this reflects his experience the excitement of the campaign and the first couple of months in the white house before it became a daily grind There are a lot of interesting insights into what its like serving in a such a high level staff position to the President, as well as into just how Clinton ran his White House far from perfectly By the end, you get a good idea of what it must have been like to be in Stephanopoulous shoes, and how much the job that he has held entails and must take out of you The book is also very well written the author has a way with words.Anyone who is a fan of the TV series The West Wing will get a special kick out of this book, as you see how Sorkin the screenwriter obviously based many of the happenings in his episodes on what really happened indeed, he admitted that he based Rob Lowe s character Sam Seaborn on Stephanopoulos, and that he used stories he found in this book

    After reading Michael Isikoff s Uncovering Clinton , which focused on the tawdry Monica Lewinsky Paula Jones Linda Tripp story, I continue to be fascinated by the Bill Clinton enigma So I decided to get an insider s look at the first four years of the Clinton presidency George Stephanopoulos joined the Clinton campaign in 1991, weathered the early storms during the battle for the Democratic nomination including the Gennifer Flowers incident, the lack of honesty over Clinton s draft status After reading Michael Isikoff s Uncovering Clinton , which focused on the tawdry Monica Lewinsky Paula Jones Linda Tripp story, I continue to be fascinated by the Bill Clinton enigma So I decided to get an insider s look at the first four years of the Clinton presidency George Stephanopoulos joined the Clinton campaign in 1991, weathered the early storms during the battle for the Democratic nomination including the Gennifer Flowers incident, the lack of honesty over Clinton s draft status in 1969 He then served as senior adviser from 1992 1996 The book is a lot about Stephanopoulos himself, his tangles with the media, the constant rivalries amongst senior staffers vying for access to the president, and the turbulent early years of the Clinton mandate From the failed health care initiative to the tax and budget reforms to the rise of Newt Gingrich and the Contract with America , we are reminded of the many storms the administration faced, and the countless hours staffers put in to help batten down the hatches The portrait that emerges of Bill and Hillary Clinton is far from flattering Clinton plays off advisers against each other, using access to meetings and his office as a weapon to reward some and punish others Hillary is hyper protective of her husband, and quick to see conspiracies everywhere Having once worked as a political staffer at amodest level, the account of the day to day management of the media, of elected officials in your own party and across the floor, is interesting and rings true But I did not get answer to my own question about decoding the Clinton enigma Despite the challenges and disappointments, Stephanopoulos but his personal life on hold to serve Bill Clinton, to witness his successes but also to look at the darker side, where truth was elastic and elusive

    I was born in 1980, so I was a little too young to engage with the politics of the first Clinton administration This book, though, by a talented communicator who blends a little Hollywood celebrity with some academic analyses of issues and campaign tactics, makes me feel like I have caught up on what I missed during my junior high years Stephanopoulos gives us a candid look at his time on the campaign trail and in the White House, written after President Clinton s impeachment but before the de I was born in 1980, so I was a little too young to engage with the politics of the first Clinton administration This book, though, by a talented communicator who blends a little Hollywood celebrity with some academic analyses of issues and campaign tactics, makes me feel like I have caught up on what I missed during my junior high years Stephanopoulos gives us a candid look at his time on the campaign trail and in the White House, written after President Clinton s impeachment but before the decision about his removal, and he seems to treat his companions fairly James Carville, Paul Begala, and Rahm Emanuel are generally portrayed positively, and although the ultimate picture of Hillary Clinton is a basically negative one especially when Stephanopoulos keeps making reference to her repeated accusations of his disloyalty , it is not without positive aspects Dick Morris is clearly the villain of the book, with the author stating in no uncertain terms that he hated the man The picture of President Clinton, though, is a fascinating one, as the author never loses his faith in the President s potential and his political strengths, even as he steadily loses confidence in his character I highly recommend this to any reader who feels like he or she missed the inside story on President Clinton s first term

    I grew up on a steady diet of ABC, NPR, and PBS I would remember watching Charles Gibson on World News and Jim Lehrer on NewsHour right afterwards And then every now and then, I would see this funny guy with a long last name show up and make commentary on W s white house George Stephanopoulos really has an amazing work ethic, and is so incredibly dedicated in everything he does Growing up in the 2000s, I was never truly familiar with the Clinton administration and the multiple scandals, vic I grew up on a steady diet of ABC, NPR, and PBS I would remember watching Charles Gibson on World News and Jim Lehrer on NewsHour right afterwards And then every now and then, I would see this funny guy with a long last name show up and make commentary on W s white house George Stephanopoulos really has an amazing work ethic, and is so incredibly dedicated in everything he does Growing up in the 2000s, I was never truly familiar with the Clinton administration and the multiple scandals, victories, and defeats of that era The writing in this book is lucid and tight, with just enough starpower and name dropping to make you feel like a beltway insider I was particularly surprised by the back and forth between the press and the white house Especially in today s age, it s been boggling to me where the white house leaks typically come from But reading through this memoir, and especially seeing Stephanopoulos and his relationship with Dick Morris, you get a better sense for where these feuds can end up going Really excellent read highly recommend

    Apparently I bought this book almost 18 years ago, then forgot I had it During some recent cleaning, I found it and decided to read it I must admit up front, I LOVE George Stephanopoulos, much to the chagrin of my right wing husband who cannot abide him That said, I enjoyed the inside look at the first Bill Clinton Presidential campaign and the story of George s experience of working in the White House While I found many of the stories intriguing, some of the writing jumped around so much, t Apparently I bought this book almost 18 years ago, then forgot I had it During some recent cleaning, I found it and decided to read it I must admit up front, I LOVE George Stephanopoulos, much to the chagrin of my right wing husband who cannot abide him That said, I enjoyed the inside look at the first Bill Clinton Presidential campaign and the story of George s experience of working in the White House While I found many of the stories intriguing, some of the writing jumped around so much, that I often had to go back and re read passages to make sure I was following details properly Learningabout wacky people like Dick Morris was mind boggling, but I was sometimes flummoxed by the appearance of other hangers on in the book Nevertheless, and I am glad I read it, and while he readily admitted many of his own flaws and insecurities, I came away from reading it liking George even

    I was interested in learning about Clinton, as I was in high school when he first became President At the time, I didn t really pay much attention to him, or his office This was an interesting perspective because it s written by a man on the inside It actually confirmed much of what I believed about the Presidency candidates can make many promises, but once in office, newfound knowledge can sometimes make it hard to follow through In addition, this book is a good balance of the man and the I was interested in learning about Clinton, as I was in high school when he first became President At the time, I didn t really pay much attention to him, or his office This was an interesting perspective because it s written by a man on the inside It actually confirmed much of what I believed about the Presidency candidates can make many promises, but once in office, newfound knowledge can sometimes make it hard to follow through In addition, this book is a good balance of the man and the Office, and how the two intermingle.Like many history books, this one was a little dry It took me almost six weeks to finish But, I came away with a greater understanding of politics, politicians, and those who work for them My conclusion is that I would not do well in that arena, so it s a good thing I changed my major from PolySci after the first semester of college

    I read this while pregnant with Abby so 10 years ago and came across it again recently I enjoyed this book immensely It is well written, cleanly told, and you get such a beautiful insider s perspective on life in DC and how it can unravel a man and his soul He paints his demise from a healthy idealist to a jaded, neurotic, depressed political aide so well, it reads like a novel.To me, this is a political must read for anyone who lived through and studied the Clinton era Wait with Hil a I read this while pregnant with Abby so 10 years ago and came across it again recently I enjoyed this book immensely It is well written, cleanly told, and you get such a beautiful insider s perspective on life in DC and how it can unravel a man and his soul He paints his demise from a healthy idealist to a jaded, neurotic, depressed political aide so well, it reads like a novel.To me, this is a political must read for anyone who lived through and studied the Clinton era Wait with Hil as SOS are we still in a Clinton era I m so confused
