"Setting: Washington, D.C. Tim Overstreet, an itinerant hobo down on his luck, is in his third year of riding the rails. But his travail is over when he finds his ""lucky coin,"" and the discovery sends his fortunes in another direction.
At the same time, in Washington, D. C., a new president, Virgil Hammerfeld, is taking office. He is elected in a surprise vote and therefore lacks a staff to carry out his policies. Thank goodness for the first lady, Lucia Hammerfeld. She sparks the brilliant concept of ""going out into the street to seek the common man and--woman."" Thus, the Kiddie Corps Cabinet made up of Tim Overstreet, Barbara Harrison (the feminist), and Bill Bacon (the former drunk), is formed.
Things soon go astray with the Corp. There's the little matter of the sex ring at the Chinese embassy, the breach of security at the State Department, and the bomb threat at the Soviet embassy. And--to make matters worse, a chimp escapes from a circus which is performing at the White House. This lovable little guy manages to creep into the Oval Office and place a call to the Kremlin's new premier--Sherinov.
