The Seat of Power

“In 1969, Cheney was a twenty-eight-year-old fledgling academic wannabe from Wyoming laboring obscurely as an intern on Capitol Hill — and lucky to be there, having twice flunked out of Yale, twice been jailed for drunk driving. Five years later he was Gerald Ford’s White House chief of staff. Can American history offer a more rapid rise to power?” And has any American had a greater influence on the way we live now? From the NY Review of Books: In the Darkness of Dick Cheney.
