I then saw this article on CNN.com talking about the health of presidents. The article says:
This work and family and rest balance is the hardest thing for a pastor/congressman to due since life and death is all around us.
Early in his administration, Clinton worked too hard and his decision making suffered as a result, according to [Clinton press secretary Joe] Lockhart.
"The first term, particularly the first couple of years, the president kind of set his own schedule and he worked from very early in the morning until very late at night. And he wore himself out, and I would argue, his decision-making ability was not nearly as good as it was in his second term," Lockhart says.
No matter how the president chooses to unwind, the enormous burdens of the job are never far away."Even in moments when you're physically trying to relax in whatever outlet you have, you have a member of the military within 15 feet with nuclear codes," Lockhart said. "That kind of takes the fun out of whatever sport you're into."
