When I first met retired U.S. Secret Service agent Clint Hill 6 1/2 years ago, he told me two things. “I don’t talk to anybody about that day ever,” and, “I will never write a book.”
Two days ago, we received our first copies of Five Presidents: My Extraordinary Journey with Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, and Ford.
Clint Hill’s third book. And yes, it includes that day. Never say never.
It was August 2009 when Clint Hill agreed, begrudgingly, to meet me at the Hay Adams Hotel just a short distance from the White House.
