If you love trashing American Presidents - evidently one of America's most popular pastimes when we're not watching Spike TV, listening to Howard Stern, or tuning in to WIP Sports Radio - then you can't beat having Woodrow Wilson around. He was a liberal, a conservative, a progressive, a reactionary, a college president, a college drop out, a mentor for minorities, a strong supporter of segregation, a defender of individual liberty, a suppressor of free speech, highly successful, a miserable failure, an experienced politician, and a less than one-term governor who was elected President of the United States. So naturally if you're an assistant professor of political history looking for - quote - "new revelations" - unquote - so you can publish and not perish, you can't ask for someone better than Woodrow.
One thing Woodrow did do was to push the United States fully onto the international checkerboard. Of course, he might not have been able to do that except he had a bit of help from a gentleman named Francisco "Pancho" Villa. So if you'd like a bit more about Woodrow, just click here.
