Warren G. Harding
Warren Gamaliel Harding, our twenty-ninth President,
served from 1921 to 1923, and is generally seen as the worst president ever... well, so far. Ironically, perhaps, it's
not all the scandals that plagued both Harding's private and political lives that gave him such a bad reputation, but that
he had no vision for where he wanted the country to go. (Warren G. Harding:
Life in Brief) In all fairness, not many people at the time wanted the country to go anywhere. To put Harding
in perspective, he followed Woody Wilson, whose presidency included World War I and the Great Influenza pandemic. It's debatable which killed more, the War
or the Flu, but the end result was that tens of millions of people died all over the world, including the United States.
It wasn't a pleasant time. The country was ready for a return to "normalcy," and Harding was the ticket.
