“Prisoners of the White House”
President Bill Clinton once joked the White House could be the crown jewel of the federal prison system. President Barack Obama has criticized the D.C “bubble” and has made particular efforts to break out.

He’s the author of Prisoners of the White House: The Isolation of America's Presidents and the Crisis of Leadership, and the chief White House correspondent for US News & World Report. He joins us on Chicago Tonight at 7:00 pm.
