Publisher's Summary

Alexis and Elliott reexamine the life and presidency of the first President Bush, number 41, George Herbert Walker Bush, current most senior member of the Bush political dynasty and prolific thank-you note writer. Alexis speaks to journalist and unauthorized Bush biographer Kitty Kelley about Bush's surprising association with Planned Parenthood, while biographer Jon Meacham recounts his WWII experience and unrelenting drive to succeed. Bush Sr. impressionist Eric Harthen gives voice to personal letters, and imagines an alternate history in which his political rise went differently.
Presidents Are People Too!, an Audible Original, recasts each of the American presidents as real-life people, complete with flaws, quirks, triumphs, scandals and bodily ailments. Hosts Elliott Kalan, former Daily Show head writer, and American historian and author Alexis Coe talk to experts, comedians, journalists, actors and re-enactors to better understand the men memorialized on the Washington Mall and those all but forgotten.
