Former member of Congress, Bob Clement (D-TN) releases new memoir  

“Presidents, Kings and Convicts: My Journey from the Tennessee Governor’s Residence to the Halls of Congress,” shares Clement’s front row seat to some of America’s most significant events and the people who shaped them

NASHVILLE, TN Dec. 19- “Presidents, Kings, and Convicts: My Journey from the Tennessee Governor’s Residence to the Halls of Congress” provides intriguing accounts of some of Clement’s most memorable events, from growing up in the Governor’s mansion, to becoming a Tennessee Valley Authority director, military officer and college president, to starting a business and serving in Congress for eight terms.

The book also examines: the current hyper-partisanship in politics today and offers solutions for fixing the country; Tennessee politics and growing up as the son of Governor Frank G. Clement; inside stories about country music legends and local, national and international politicians and events; what makes great leaders; and how to restore public service and politics as careers worth pursuing. In addition, at the end of each chapter are, “Clement’s Contemplations,” Clement’s humorous musings about politics and life. “I decided to finally write a book to preserve for my family and all Americans what I’ve learned and experienced over my lifetime,” Clement said. “My main goal is to restore faith in our political system and give people some insight into what it was like growing up as the son of a famous father. I hope to also encourage young people to not give up on our political system or the military, as well as consider getting involved in public service.”

“I’ve known Bob for almost my entire life, from when we both teenagers in Tennessee to the days when we worked together in Washington, D.C. We share a deep love of country, a trait that was obvious in Bob’s tireless work for the people of Tennessee and the United States. His autobiography, Presidents, Kings and Convicts gives readers an inside look into Bob’s remarkable life from Nashville to our nation’s Capital,” said former Vice President, Al Gore.

Lloyd Remick, Esq., attorney and Clement’s literary agent said: “Presidents, Kings and Convicts is an important book that only Bob Clement could write. He’s been an eyewitness to so much political history, and his life-story is fascinating. It also would be a book that anyone interested in understanding the inner-workings of government would appreciate.”
