Similarities and Differences: T. Roosevelt vs. W. Wilson Michelle Neuman HIS204 Professor Carl Garrigus July 8, 2013 Similarities and Differences: T. Roosevelt vs. W. Wilson The election of 1912 was an election that changed the country, as 75 percent of all votes cast were for a Progressive candidate. The candidates were Theodore Roosevelt, a staunch Progressive who ran under the newly created Bull Moose Party; William Howard Taft, a Republican; and, Woodrow Wilson, a Progressive Democrat. The race was one of astounding victory for the progressive way of thinking. While there were definite parallels in the two men, the contrasts were far more striking. Even though Roosevelt and Wilson were both supportive of the progressive movement, they ran for President under two completely different parties, and this was not their only difference.

Malak Abdelmelek Professor: Lewis Metzger Words: 1,104 Thomas Jefferson: Examining Some of His Achievements and Failures as a President of the United States of America 1801-1809 From 1789 until our recent days, great men were elected to be the president of the United States of America, the greatest nation on earth. Each one of them offered the best they had to their country and they had one goal in mind which was to bring the US to that place of prosperity and development. One of those men is Thomas Jefferson, the 3rd president of the US, who was elected twice to be the president, once in 1800 and the second time in 1804.

After he became president, Stroessner ruled for eight terms a total of 35 years. He improved Paraguay’s economy at an astonishing rate primarily by building the largest hydroelectric power plant in the world in Itaipu Dam. Stroessner’s rule actually helped the country a great deal, but he always made sure he was in absolute control. The power of his military was unstoppable; the people had no freedoms and they were completely at Stroessner’s mercy. In 1988 Stroessner was elected into his eighth successive term as president but he was overthrown by a military coup in 1989.
In analyzing the top ten successful presidents, Franklin Roosevelt is well recognized as one of the most successful presidents in American History. He’s one of the very few presidents that fit into both of the models I will be covering; Stephen Skowrenek’s prediction of presidential success based on the circumstances and James Barber’s theory of presidential success based on presidential character. FDR, as he’s called, to avoid the mix up with his older relative and former president, Theodore Roosevelt. Franklin Roosevelt is credited for defining the modern presidency because he expanded the powers of the president probably beyond any president before his time. This essay Focuses on Franklin Roosevelt an how both his character and place in political time affected his success.
Abraham Lincoln Born near Hodgenville, Kentucky. on February 12, 1809, Lincoln was the central figure of the Civil War, and is regarded by many historians and laymen as not only the foremost of our presidents but also the greatest American of all time. With scant formal education, from a poor family, this frontier lawyer held the nation together through the worst crisis in its history. A leader of weaker will or fainter vision might well have failed either to win the Civil War or end the institution of slavery. With good reason, he is viewed as the savior of the American union and the "Great Emancipator."
Lewinskky Scandal: The Story of the Comeback Kid America’s 42nd president and his administration are responsible for many milestones and achievements. To start, the governor from Arkansas was, and still is, the third-youngest man to be elected President of the United States at age 46 and was the first democrat elected for a second term since Franklin D. Roosevelt. These small feats are nothing though when analyzing the true legacy of the Clinton Administration. Perhaps the biggest achievement was that between the presidential elections of 1992 and 2000 William “Bill” Jefferson Clinton presided over the longest period of peacetime economic expansion in the history of the United States of America. And, although his economic policies are the most well known political achievements of his administration he was also able to enact significant pieces of legislature.
