Quote of the Day

Eisenhower ... was an institutional innovator. He created the first White House chief of staff, the first congressional relations office, and the first presidential assistant for national security affairs, a post that has come to be called the national security adviser. The crown jewel of Eisenhower's advisory system was the institutional machinery associated with the weekly meetings of the National Security Council. 

- Fred I. Greenstein in The Presidential Difference
