The inauguration of a new president is always an exciting moment for Americans: the new man’s supporters are filled with expectation, wondering what changes he will introduce, while his opponents speculate how long it will take before the new president screws up.
To err is human—a truism that’s just as true about presidents as it is about the rest of us. But when we read the lives of our presidents we learn that the presidents had what they considered to be sound reasons, even the best of intentions, for what they did. Even covering up the Watergate break-in seemed like a good idea at the time.
