Making President Clinton's Reading List

Clinton and MadisonIt’s not the best photo of me that’s ever been taken, but there are definite virtues to this one, particularly President Clinton’s savvy placement of the copy of Madison’s Gift that I presented to him.

Our conversation?  I said that I imagined that he had not found time to read Lynne Cheney’s biography of Madison.  He smiled broadly and said, “I did not.”  I presented Madison’s Gift as a superior alternative.
