Most Americans believe that in the past our presidents were smarter, more honest, and behaved more like gentlemen than those we elect today. "Long before Watergate, Contragate, Travelgate, Nannygate, and Monicagate, our presidents were lying, cheating, stealing, and womanizing." White House: Confidential authors Gregg Stebben and Austin Hill. White House: Confidential is a clear-eyed look at America's long line of presidents, warts and all. Focusing on the qualities that never made it into the press releases, the authors look at the strange family relationships, scandals that engulfed their administrations, fights with enemies, and questionable money matters. The first controversial edition of White House: Confidential featured: A "presidential score card" of which presidents cheated on their wives (and with whom) Random acts of goofy presidential behavior Their frequently accurate predictions of their own demise Their comments on leaving office How they died Presidential firsts And the role of vice presidents Two new chapters have been added in this revised and updated edition: "Impeached!" looks at how impeachment and the threat of impeachment have affected several presidents. "Nepotism! A Family Affair!" shows how presidential relatives have exploited their connections. Yet others have used a relative's presidency as a springboard to their own.

A positive legacy of the troubled Nixon administration—and one virtually unknown to the American public—is the extensive acquisition of valuable art and antiques for the White House and the redecoration of the executive mansion by Pat Nixon. With the help of an aggressive curator, Clement Conger, and a talented interior designer, Edward Vason Jones, the First Lady quietly erased much of the historic décor of Jacqueline Kennedy’s Camelot and introduced an academic look to the State Rooms which endures to this day. Nixon marked his presidential territory with a complete renovation of the West Wing—a harbinger of the First Lady’s plans. They implemented a massive fundraising campaign to bankroll the refurbishment, which resulted in one of the foremost collections of art, art objects, furniture, paintings and sculpture in America. This book presents the never before told story of the Nixons’ remodeling of the White House, motivated by the approaching American Bicentennial and a desire to restore respect to the presidency through the arts.
