"They say in America anyone can be President. The President commands one of the most powerful military forces in the world, lives in a mansion, travels in style, and is served and protected by a million-dollar entourage…but would you want the job? IT’S GOOD TO BE PRESIDENT takes the typical slate of domestic and foreign policy questions asked of and about Presidents, and trades them in for something truly unique an entertaining conversation about the perks and perils of being the most powerful leader of the free world. By combining interviews with past Presidents and insiders who run the White House, rarely seen recordings, and home movies, this feature-length program explores fascinating aspects of the leaders we only thought we knew, to reveal a fresh, nuanced perspective on the ins and outs of a day in the life of the American President." - History Channel
