summarize ONE favorite presidential anecdote
I find anything about Churchill and Roosevelt interesting but the idea that the let Churchill see him as he was and not the strong persona is telling about his trust in Churchill as a friend.
The pair made the 150-mile journey from Casablanca to Marrakech to stay at the Villa Taylor, owned by a wealthy American socialite, Mrs. Moses Taylor. Arriving late in the afternoon, Churchill insisted that Roosevelt accompany him to the Berber tower atop the villa to view the sunset. The President's assistants carried him up the stairs by making a chair with their arms, and the pair sat and witnessed the sun's golden rays glistening along the snow-capped peaks of the Atlas Mountains. It is said that Roosevelt was so taken by the scene that, with outstretched arms, he lightheartedly exclaimed to his dear friend:
"I feel like a sultan, you may kiss my hand my dear."
