Summary
One can scarcely imagine an environment outside the nation's penal system that is more isolating than the Executive Mansion, a habitat almost guaranteed to keep America's commander in chief far removed from everyday life. In fact, isolation is emerging as one of the most serious dilemmas facing the American presidency. This bubble of isolation is real, intense, hard to pierce, and hard to find your way out of. Walsh gets inside the bubble and punctures the mythology surrounding the presidency
