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. Among their
secrets: How Jack Kennedy tried to blame Ike for the Bay of Pigs.
How Ike quietly helped Reagan win his first race in 1966. How
Richard Nixon conspired with Lyndon Johnson to get elected and then
betrayed him. How Jerry Ford and Jimmy Carter turned a deep enmity
into an alliance. The unspoken pact between a father and son named
Bush. And the roots of the rivalry between Clinton and Barack
Time magazine editors and presidential historians Nancy
Gibbs and Michael Duffy offer a new and revealing lens on the
American presidency, exploring the club as a hidden instrument of
power that has changed the course of history.
