Description

Allen declined to provide any details on any tensions in the Clinton's private quarters during the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. But again, the story was not improved by long drawn out descriptions of the characters' sexual activity. So, I walked into the bedroom, and the president's just coming out of his dressing room in his underwear,” Allen said.

Allen’s stories, and those of many other White House residence staff, are revealed in detail in a new book “The Residence,” by author Kate Andersen Brower. While the document was designated "for the President's eyes only," Allen would end up seeing more than he bargained for that day in 1981: a naked president. Turning off the personalised advertising setting won’t stop you from seeing Etsy ads, but it may make the ads you see less relevant or more repetitive.

e. a Newt Gingrich presidential claim--this novel appears perhaps even more relevant now than it did the year of its release (2000). More than a work of fiction, Naked Presidents is a wild romp through an alternate universe, where conventional wisdom is overthrown and some of our most cherished myths are destroyed. Kennedy was not murdered in Dallas and in the book not murdered at all, and secondly, the book does contain some sexual content that may not be appropriate for all, especially if you are fond of the character.

A quote attributed to Ben Franklin establishes the theme: "impeachment is the political equivalent of assassination. It provides an unusual perspective Bill Clinton, but ultimately squanders the promise offered by the premise to create a fully realized alternate history. I find it a bit of a hard stretch on the career Air Force thing (not that he was cowardly, I just think he would have transitioned into the private sector/ political arena sooner). In most respects, his speculation of a post-Dallas presidency is the more interesting of the two sections, particularly when postulating Frank Sinatra’s renewed friendship with the Kennedy family. The Vietnam era generation (of which I am not) and those longing for the success of the 90's will appreciate the intertwining of worlds both invented, inverted, and completely true--as JFK survives Dallas, Clinton is a whistle blower, Sinatra lives the latter part of his life sans tongue--while sex permeates the novel just enough to make it as slick as the real and reinvented presidents who play the lead roles.

In this quirky, yet fascinating book, James Silver turns History inside out to show what might have happened. The alternate timeline is not greatly different than our own, but different enough that it makes you think.

What if Kennedy had been the President impeached, and Clinton the one struck down after a thousand days in the White House? This allows Silver to make his underlying argument for Clinton’ achievements as a president, an implicit argument he makes explicit at the end in a passionate and rambling epilogue.

In Silver's world, JFK's infidelities become public knowledge thanks to enemies like Hoover, and spark the nation's first independent counsel investigation and impeachment trial, whereas Bill Clinton is shot and killed by an ex-Marine named McVeigh in revenge for the Waco tragedy.He dried his hands off and he said, ‘Oh, yeah, I'm working through that,’” Allen remembers, Reagan seemingly unfazed by the encounter. I could have done without the cutesy attempts at humor -- a few sentences on legalizing marijuana would have been interesting without pulling a character from Animal House.
