Book summary

As the full extent of bill clinton's misconduct in office became clear to the american people, the public outrage that was expected did not materialise. William j. Bennett analyses the meaning of the clinton scandals and argues that with enormous skill, the president and his advisors have constructed a defensive wall built of bricks left over from watergate: diversion, half truth, equivocation, and sophistry. It is a wall that remains unbreached. Until now. In the death of outrage, bennett dismantles this wall, brick by evasive brick. He shows how the presidents private actions, far from being irrelevent to the conduct of public affairs, have severely restricted his ability to govern. Bennett agues that clinton's unprecedented recklessness is evident in everything from influence peddling to sexual misconduct and that these scandals, far from being a tabloid creation, are inextricably inter-linked with the president's corruption. Bill bennett explains why presidential character matters; why allegations of sexual misconduct need to be taken seriously; why reasoned judgement is the mark of a healthy democracy; and why the ends don't justify the means. Explosive and hard-hitting, powerful in its logic, carefully reasoned in its conclusions, the death of outrage allows the reader to repudiate the deep corruption of bill clinton, and the corrupting arguments made in his defense [via]
