"When do they actually get the keys to the White House?"
"How does a person manage being president and a parent?"
"Just what does a president do, anyway?"
We are consistently shown images of the president, from inauguration to signing bills into laws … even medical exams. But few people actually know what it's like to be on the inside, to see the president with his children, to hear the president compose his addresses to the nation or to see how an incoming president prepares to take over the hardest job in the world.
