Summary
  • "After completing their terms, several former chief executives used their influence to change the course of history. Four became presidential candidates again (one, Grover Cleveland, was even elected), two served in Congress, one betrayed his country to accept election to the Confederate Congress, and one became Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Bill Clinton has had the unique distinction of seeing his First Lady become a United States senator. Others simply retired from politics completely, languishing away in relative obscurity. Presidents of the United States always have been at the center of the nation's attention - After the White House is the first look at the curious position in which they find themselves when they are relieved from this intense scrutiny
  • This book sheds light on the institution of the presidency while also managing to humanize the men who have served in their nation's highest office."--Jacket
