There could hardly have been a more diametrically opposed figure to represent the opposition party in President Barack Obama's Washington than John Boehner. But when Boehner announced his resignation, President Obama called to tell the outgoing Speaker that he'd miss him. "Mr. President," Boehner replied, "yes you will." He thought of himself as a "regular guy with a big job," and he enjoyed it.

In addition to his own stories of life in the swamp city and of his comeback after getting knocked off the leadership ladder, Boehner offers his impressions of leaders he's met and what made them successes or failures, from Ford and Reagan to Obama, Trump, and Biden. He shares his views on how the Republican Party has become unrecognizable today; the advice--some harsh, some fatherly--he dished out to members of his own party, the opposition, the media, and others; and his often acid-tongued comments about his former colleagues. And of course he talks about golfing with five presidents.

Through Speaker Boehner's honest and self-aware reflections, you'll be reminded of a time when the adults were firmly in charge.

Boehner will be in conversation with David M. Drucker, senior correspondent for the Washington Examiner, where he focuses on Congress, campaigns and national political trends, providing breaking news reporting, analysis and insight. He is also a Vanity Fair contributing writer and regular on cable news and talk radio.
