This psychological portrait of Bill Clinton and his presidency investigates whether he has demonstrated the necessary qualities of judgement, vision, character and skill to face domestic and international challenges. Stanley Renshon reveals a Bill Clinton whose capacity for political success is often undermined by the very traits for which many praise him. Now in paperback with a new introduction for the late 1990s, the book follows the development of Clinton's character from his early family experiences to his highly successful adolescence and long political career. Renshon illustrates how each step along the way - his childhood, the issues surrounding his draft-dodging, his marriage to Hillary Rodham, and his tenure as governor - is crucial to understanding his erratic and controversial presidency. He also explores the nature of the Clinton marriage as a political partnership and looks at Hillary Clinton as an associate president.
