Oval Office Oddities

(2008)
An Irreverent Collection of Presidential Facts, Follies, and Foibles
A non fiction book by

 
Every four years Americans go to the polls to elect a leader - a personage of unimpeachable sobriety and moral standing who will serve as a paragon for the rest of us. But truth be told, presidents and their families are people too - with quirks and character flaws like everyone else . . . and plenty of skeletons rattling around in their closets. Oval Office Oddities is a grand compendium of fascinating, sometimes embarrassing presidential facts, gaffes, and oddball behaviors - available in plenty of time for Election Day!

White House Whoopee: We've all heard about the dalliances of Clinton and Kennedy - but what were Washington, Jefferson, FDR, and Ike doing behind closed doors?

America's Imelda: Mary Todd Lincoln had an endearing little clothing fetish . . . and once purchased 300 pairs of gloves in a single month!

Go West, Young Prez: "California Dreamin'" was not a top presidential priority . . . since no Commander in Chief bothered to visit the neglected coast until Rutherford B. Hayes did in 1880.

Crazy Jack: Many prominent leaders were absolutely convinced that John Adams was stark raving bonkers!
