Bobby Baker was a small-town southern boy when he arrived in Washington in 1943, but he had a sure sense of political clout. He soon knew which senator wanted what done almost before the senator knew himself. Senator Robert Kerr was the first instrument of Bobby Baker s rise. He found an even more powerful sponsor in Lyndon Johnson, and he rose with Johnson until no doors were closed to him. He tells here a unique insider s story of the always fascinating ways of power in the Congress of the United States."
