Johnson, Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Bill Clinton.;A new expanded chapter on Clinton reviews the latest dramatic phases of Clinton's experiences with Congress and provides a basis for analyzing one of, arguably, the most interesting presidencies in recent times, and the workings of a separated system.
