Confessions of a Clintonworld Exile

•, By Gabriel Sherman

Doug Band's office at Teneo, the corporate advisory firm he cofounded, is decorated like a wing of the Bill Clinton presidential library. Framed photographs of the 42nd president adorn virtually every surface

except for windows overlooking the rush hour traffic crawling down Park Avenue. "A lot of these pictures are just about moments," Band said one morning last winter as he showed me his collection. Band, a broad-shouldered man with dark eyes and prematurely graying hair, appeared in many of the pictures. There were photos of Band and Clinton playing golf with Barack Obama, posing backstage with Michael Jackson, and meeting North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il. "Bill Clinton was my life for almost 20 years," Band said.
