The Political History of President Bill Clinton
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for The Washington Post, David Maraniss. He's just completed a new biography of President Clinton, "First in His Class." In researching the book, Maraniss interviewed more than 400 people, including Clinton's friends, relatives, and colleagues. One reviewer writes, "the portrait of Mr. Clinton that emerges from this biography is not one of a visionary leader or statesman, but of an indefatigable, instinctual politician, driven throughout his life to seek the approval of friends and strangers alike." Maraniss won a Pulitzer for his reporting on Clinton's presidential campaign.
