Summary
Cohen looks at eight men who came to the office of President after the incumbent died in office. He demonstrates how the character of the man in that powerful seat affects the nation and world. John Tyler became the first president threatened with impeachment. Millard Fillmore sacked his predecessor's entire cabinet. Andrew Johnson sided with remnants of the Confederacy in Reconstruction. Lyndon B. Johnson led the nation forward on Civil Rights but failed on Vietnam. Their stories add to our understanding of the power and limits of the American presidency in critical times
