No mention of Lewinsky and too much saxophone
Is there anything you would change about this book?
At least talk about Monica Lewinsky - her omission raises questions to the authors' assumed, political neutrality.
What was most disappointing about Alexis Coe and Elliott Kalan ’s story?
As mentioned, the fact that nothing of the beret wearing intern was included nor was the stark gravity of a standing president lying under oath begs the listeners to assume that Coe and Kalan are left-leaning - which isn't in and of itself a crime, but shouldn't the people behind a podcast entitled "Presidents are People Too" say as much? Bill Clinton's bedroom indiscretions prove he is as ubiquitous as the next person. Not including the scandal that rocked the nation was a mistake and shows slight political bias.
I'm a big fan of Alexis Coe and Elliott Kalan but feel they missed the mark with this one.
