    Outside the Oval Office is a small rectangular room with two side-by-side, nondescript wooden desks. In one sits President Obama’s personal secretary. In the other is Brian Mosteller, the man who sweats the small stuff so that the president doesn’t have to. Few have even heard of Mosteller, but if you look closely at photographs taken inside the White House, you can often glimpse him at the edge of the frame, omnipresent. From his chair, he is the only person in the White House with a direct view of the president at his desk. No one gets in the Oval...

    When he's mad, President Barack Obama gets eerily quiet. A 21-year-old former Duke University football and basketball star improbably became then-Senator Obama's right-hand man during his first presidential campaign. Reggie Love went on to work as Obama's personal aide for five years, crisscrossing the nation with America's future president, serving him meals, carrying around his luggage, buying him clothes, challenging him on the basketball court, and babysitting for his children. In a new memoir, "Power Forward: My Presidential Education," Love discusses being by Obama's side "on the campaign trail when no one believed in him" to the "seconds before stepping...

Obama himself acknowledges that his impromptu walks and trips to restaurants can prove stressful for his...
