“American ideals do not require to be changed so much as they require to be understood and applied.” -Coolidge

August 3, 1923-March 3, 1929

Coolidge was a Republican running from MA. He was govenor then America went through a conservative economic phase and he won by a landslide as VP with Harding. When Harding died in office, Coolidge took over. Despite Harding's corruptness, in 1924 when Coolidge ran for president against R. LaFollete (Rep) and J. Davis (Dem) he won 382 votes to 149 (combined).

To Coolidge: If you could, what would you do differently about the economic situation? How does it feel to be VP to a corrupt president?What do you wish you knew then about Nazi Germany?Do you consider yourself responsible for the World Wars?Do you think it was a good idea to give tax breaks to those already wealthy?
