    Washington Week [#5148H] Every US president since the beginning has brought a rich and diverse background to the White House. Some were life-long politicians; others were career military officers, entrepreneurs and even a former actor. The one common experience each of them has shared is the evolution from candidate to commander in chief. Afterward, most of them returned to civilian life.
    While each president surrounds himself with a hand-picked circle of advisers, cabinet members and staff, the question remains - can anyone thoroughly prepare for the complex job of president of the United States? Maybe not, but in recent years presidents have sought counsel and found support from a very exclusive group - their predecessors.
    Weeks before his inauguration, then President-elect Barack Obama met with President George W. Bush and 3 former presidents at the White House. President Bill Clinton forged a close relationship with former President Richard Nixon over foreign policy. And since leaving office, George H. W. Bush has worked in tandem on a number of humanitarian efforts with the man who kept him from a second-term - Bill Clinton.
    We examine the unique bipartisan solidarity current and former presidents share with the reporters who cover the White House: Michael Duffy of Time Magazine and co-author of "The Presidents Club"; Peter Baker of The New York Times; John Harris of Politico; and Christi Parsons of Tribune News.
