Clintonista, A White House Memoir, is a behind-the-scenes look at life and work in the world's most powerful house. Melinda Bates is the only person in history to run the White House Visitors Office for all eight years of an administration. From her perch in the East Wing she organized Easter Egg Rolls, fireworks viewings, and ceremonies for visiting heads of state. Breakfast with Tom Hanks, lunch with Michael Douglas, gifts from the King of Morocco, and dinner seated next to President Bill Clinton were all in a day's work. The author is uniquely qualified to take the reader backstage as celebrities, dignitaries and political power brokers visit President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton. How does the White House work? What happens when it doesn't work so well? How does someone get a job there? Everybody loves the White House, and Clintonista is a zany, heart-breaking, and compelling first- hand account of eight amazing years of American history. This is the SAME book as White House Story, a Democratic Memoir, only with a different title.
