Manage episode 325906846 series 2660252
When Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in to replace the assassinated William McKinley, he was well aware that almost every previous accidental president had been a failure, and none had won reelection.
He had a plan to buck the trend, and it started with winning over McKinley's cabinet.
Join me as I interview presidential scholar Lindsay M. Chervinsky, author of The Cabinet: George Washington and the Creation of an American Institution, and cohost of the SMU Center for Presidential History podcast The Past, The Promise, The Presidency , in a conversation about Roosevelt, the cabinet, and his doomed bromance with Secretary of War and presidential successor William Howard Taft.
