This presentation is joined in progress at the discussion of Woodrow Wilson.
Wilson is an interesting character. As I believe that I have said before, Obama reminds me more of Wilson than either Roosevelt or Hoover.
I do not particularly like Woodrow Wilson's tenure as president, for many of the same reasons that I find Barack Obama to be found wanting, compared to the progressive title to which he has pretended but to which he has only rarely delivered. He seems more like a traditional moderate Republican, with a nose for the deal rather than for a set of defining principles. And much the same can be said for Wilson and his own stumbling ineffectiveness, emphasis on ends rather than means, and servility to the financial interests.
