The Scandal Society

From Nixon and Clinton to Obama
By NOEMIE EMERY

In The Presidents’ Club, Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy tell us of the bonds that unite former presidents, but within this club is a still smaller subset, the Scandal Society, those shadowed by crimes and abuses of power, who were caught up in snares of their own making and traps that they set for themselves. How do their troubles compare with each other’s, and with those that the current incumbent is facing? Let us look at them and see.:peace

Interesting article.

Now, imagine that the GOP had not chosen the path of total negativity during term 1, hadn't savaged each other during the primaries and had selected someone more plausible than Romney, with his tax cut crown jewel, we might well not have gotten stuck with the 2nd term of Obama.

3 more years. Sigh.

Well, since the hors d'oeuvres you served were so tasty, I decided to buy the dinner. When I went to Amazon.com, however, I wasn't sure where to look on the menu. What title am I looking for? The Scandal Society is not there. Is it part of The President's Club? :?: (I usually don't have problems spending money!) :lamo:

Good evening, Jack. :2wave:

The book is The Presidents Club but I suspect the Scandal Society may be Emery's own invention, and not really part of the book. Then again, who knows?

Good evening, Polgara.:2wave:
