Description - To Serve the President by Bradley H. Patterson, Jr.
Come hell or high water, the American people will elect a new president in November 2008, and the following January will see a changeover in presidential administrations. One of the first challenges facing the new chief executive, and one of the most consequential, is to put his or her stamp on the personnel and day-to-day operations of the "new" White House. In this insightful and entertaining book, a veteran of several presidential administrations opens a window onto the closely guarded Oval Office turf.
