It is reprinted by permission of athenaeum publishers by Jeb s. Magruder North american newspaper Alliance i first entered the presidents world on a Bright afternoon in 1969. I was 34 years old and the head of two Small cosmetics companies. I had been the Southern California coordinator for the 1968 Nixon Campaign and the presidents chief of staff Bob Haldeman offered me a Job on his staff pending a permanent assignment with the title of special assistant to the president. The position was by presidential appointment a status Symbol. I realized that despite the title i would be More an assistant to Haldeman than to the president but that was All right with me. I was on my Way to the White House the Chance i had been waiting for All my life. I was on the Way up All the Way to the top. My own first meeting with the president came in my second week on the Job when Haldeman took me into the Oval office for a Brief handshake and great to have you aboard Chat. I was struck by How ill at ease the president seemed in greeting me. His hands Shook when he drank Coffee there was an embarrassing rattle of cup against Saucer. I took that to be the result both of nervous tension and of his Lack of physical dexterity. One of the younger White House aides told me a classic Story about Nixon a physical awkwardness. At a Bill signing ceremony a pen had been placed in front of the president on his desk with its top off. Nixon picked it up puts its top on and tried to sign the Bill.

Almost everyone in the administration was working directly or indirectly for Haldeman because that was How his Boss the president wanted it. Quot every president needs a son of a Bitch Quot Haldeman used to say Quot and in a Nixon a. In a his Buffer and in a his Bastard. I get done what he wants done and i take the heat instead of Bob was tall Crew Cut self confident efficient disciplined impatient Tough fair and ultraconservative.
