I'm reading "American Lion" by Jon Meacham, about Andrew Jackson. The reason it's so relevant to today's environment is the whole outsider coming to the white house hell bent on sweeping away the corrupt elites and installing a government more responsive to the people. He's generally held in contempt as an anti-intellectual rube, a disaster in the making, and a sure fire one term president. Sound familiar?

I have a copy of that but have not read it.

It's apparent that I need to read "American Lion" to understand current affairs.
