Partners in Power by Roger Morris. Probably the most comprehensive work on the Clintons, who they are, what they do and why. Roger Morris is actually not a member of the VRWC, his credentials qualify him as a
Lib--al (this is a family page, no swear words allowed) but don't let that stop you from reading this book. Good foundation for understanding the president and her husband.
Bloodsport by James B. Stewart. Another comprehensive view of the Clinton presidency, concentrating on Whitewater and the scandals of the first disastrous year or two of the regime. Stewart also flunked the entrance exam for the VRWC. He was actually commissioned by Susan Thomases to write this book to exonerate the Clintons on Whitewater, etc. Imagine her chagrin when he starting investigating and demonstrating his intent to discover and write about the story instead of rubber-stamping the story he was fed.
The Death of Outrage by William J. Bennet. Bill Bennet, brother of Clinton's lawyer Bob Bennet, is a charter member of the VRWC. This excellent book goes to the heart of the damage that Clinton has done to America (subtitled "Bill Clinton and the Attack on America's values") in a way that gives you a panoramic view of the forest while everyone's busily counting trees.
High Crimes and Misdemeanors by Ann Coulter. This book is required reading for anyone who's serious about being an American citizen. Ann Coulter's seat is right next to Bill Bennet's at the VRWC secret banquet table. In this book she meticulously details Clinton's legion violations of law and outlines exactly how they fit the historic requirements for impeachment and removal from office. Very easy to read with injections of caustic humor typical of the new age wing of the VRWC.
The Blood Trail by Michael Sullivan. Another fictionalized novel about a real life event. During Clinton's governorship the Cummins correctional facility in Arkansas was harvesting plasma from prisoners. They were none too careful about the health of the prisoners they were using since they were raking in the money doing it. More than 7,000 Canadians are expected to die as a result of the scandal. A doctor treating the prisoners got wind of the situation and wrote a novel based on the story.
Unlimited Access by Gary Aldrich. This book loses some credibility because of the vindictive tone the author takes and the pettiness of some of the detail. Nevertheless, the overall picture it paints of the chaos and generation X arrogance of the Clinton White House has proven to be pretty accurate. Not a long book, it's an easy read if you're capable of browsing a USA Today.
The Agenda by Bob Woodward. Woodward not only flunked the VRWC test, he got thrown out of the testing center. This book attempted to illustrate Clinton's dedication to fixing the economy. Unfortunately for Clinton, however, Woodward, like James B. Stewart before him, was unable to tell the story without illustrating the incompetence of the philanderer-in-chief and his staff.
The Choice by Bob Woodward. I heard Bobby boy on PBS talking about writing this book and bought it. Never actually read it. You can find it on the 1.99 counter at the front of your favorite bookstore. Seems to tell the same story the Agenda does, couched in the '96 election. Woodward walked away from that election with a very favorable impression of Dole over Clinton.
Primary Colors by Anonymous (Joe Klein). Fun-to-read and very enlightening fictionalized account of Clinton's run for the New Hampshire primary in '92. You have to recognize the real-life counterparts of 75% of the fictional characters in order to qualify to take the VRWC membership entrance exam.
Boy Clinton by R. Emmet Tyrell. Once every generation a book comes along that is so well-researched, so fair-handed, so smoothly crafted, that it is destinged to end up on every bookshelf in America. This is not that book. Tyrell is in jeopardy of losing his VRWC status for his blatant and unbridled vindictiveness toward the Commander in heat. This biography of Clinton pushes Tyrell's agenda and grinds his ax with the flavor of a high school newsletter journalist writing an expose of the quarterback who stole the girl he had his heart set on. I think I made it to chapter three.
Compromised by Terry Reed & John Cummings. Haven't read this one but it probes the Clinton/Mena/CIA/Bush/Iran-Contra affair. Pretty meaty stuff, I imagine.
The secret life of Bill Clinton by Ambrose Evans Pritchard. Pritchard sits at the British end of the radical wing of the VRWC banquet table next to Christopher Ruddy and . . . oh, you know, that other guy. His viewpoint is like an R. Emmet Tyrell with a real English teacher in college. I haven't read this book but am anxious to as Pritchard always delivers a lively story that pushes the envelope but provides good facts to back up his conclusions.
