When Presidents Go Wrong

Examines how several presidents of the United States got involved in scandals which seriously damaged the image of an untainted leader.

As a global leader, the President is at once a strong leader, role model and agent of positive change for billions of people worldwide. Most Americans hold the office in awe and expect their leader to be above reproach in his moral and ethical life and actions. As we will now see, that is not always the case. Many presidents’ terms in office, those of from George Washington to Bill Clinton, have been a bit, or even seriously tainted by scandal.
