“The office is kinda like the little country boy found a hoochie coochie show at the carnival. Once he paid his dime and got inside the tent: it ain’t exactly as it was advertised.” — Lyndon Johnson
The Hardest Job in the World, now a New York Times best-seller, is a study of the presidency. The past and the present. It is a book about what the presidency requires and how we should think about its duties. That we should think of it as a hard job is not an excuse. It’s a warning. Presidents must face high-stakes challenges requiring temperament, foresight, decisiveness. We should think of the job’s requirements when picking presidents and evaluating those who have the job.
