Picking Americas best presidents is easy. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt usually lead the list, But choosing the nations worst presidents requires more thought. In Star-Spangled Men, respected presidential biographerMorePicking Americas best presidents is easy. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Franklin D. Roosevelt usually lead the list, But choosing the nations worst presidents requires more thought. In Star-Spangled Men, respected presidential biographer Nathan Miller puts on display those leaders who were abject failures as chief executive. With pointed humor and a deft hand, he presents a rogues gallery of the men who dropped the presidential ball, and sometimes their pants as well.Miller includes Richard M. Nixon, who was forced to resign to escape impeachment- Jimmy Carter, who proved that the White House is not the place for on-the-job training- and Warren G. Harding, who gave being in the closet new meaning as he carried on extramarital interludes in one near the Oval Office. This current edition also includes a new assessment of Bill Clinton -- who has admitted lying to his family, his aides, his cabinet, and the American people.
