    Richard Nixon was a young Navy officer when he first saw Dwight D. Eisenhower through a storm of tickertape as Manhattan celebrated the end of the war in Europe. Seven years later, Nixon was Eisenhower's running mate on the Republican presidential ticket-the beginning of a political and personal relationship that lasted for nearly twenty years. Despite a gulf that separated them by age and temperament, their association evolved into a collaboration that helped to shape the nation's political ideology.

    Story
    What did you love best about Ike and Dick?

    This book gave a good insight into the complexities of the relationship between the 34th president and his vice president. Nixon never felt as if he was part of Ike's inner circle, and Eisenhower didn't feel that Nixon was up to the job of being president if the situation arose. There were a lot of stories I had never known (Ike's infatuation with Robert Anderson as a potential president, Ike pressuring Nixon to drop off the ticket in 1956).
