I am grateful to many people who have supported and sustained my interest in political history and presidential leadership. At the University of Richmond, I especially appreciate the discussions I’ve had with Scott Allison, Julian Hayter, and Daniel Palazzolo. Two wonderful students, Abby Huth and Matt Logan, were especially helpful. My confidants Stephen Hayes and Steve Young have consistently offered encouragement, and most important they have listened. Jim Shaw’s occasional interruptions have always been refreshing. Family and friends at Raquette Lake provide the buoyancy needed to carry on. Thank you.

Elizabeth DeBusk-Maslanka has unfailingly provided cheerful editorial advice, research, and organization. I am deeply indebted to her. Other sustaining support has been offered by my colleagues Michele Bedsaul, Shannon Best, Jessica Flanigan, Javier Hidalgo, Crystal Hoyt, Don Forsyth, Peter Kaufman, Pam Khoury, Gary McDowell, Sandra Peart, Terry Price, Susan Taylor, Stephanie Trent, and Thad Williamson.

At Emerald, I want to thank Charlotte Maiorana for her initial interest in this project, and her support throughout. Also, Nick Wolterman has effectively guided the book through the production process, and I am grateful.

Members of my family help tremendously by who they are, and by their wise understanding, especially Jefferson, Meagan, Andrew, and Vanessa. Most of all, I thank BB for her interest and support every single day. And truly, Tennyson Rose lights up my life. I am grateful for her timely arrival.
