Melinda Bates is the only person in history to run the White House Visitors Office for all eight years of an administration, which she proudly did for Bill and Hillary Clinton. And because she was not just a Special Assistant to the President, but also a lifelong “friend of Bill,” she had access to all the public and private spaces, and all the most fascinating events to take place in America’s House. She literally helped make history there every day. The White House is the world’s most famous House, but it’s still a mystery to most people. Melinda’s funny, intimate, back-stage stories swing open those gates and invite your audience in. How does it really work? What happens when it doesn’t work? Who comes to visit? The Grateful Dead and the Queen of Sweden. On the same day. No problem! Breakfast with Tom Hanks, lunch with Michael Douglas, tea with Dr. Ruth and dinner seated next to the President of the United States were all in a day’s work. As President Clinton happily said, “it was a hell of a ride,” and you will never hear these stories anywhere else!
