If you look at the domestic policies of TR, Taft, Wilson, and Harding, who do you think was the most successful and the most unsuccessful.* Explain fully your choices and why you chose those individuals.

Why don't you start by offering your opinions on the policies and allowing us to react to those?

Otherwise the above, especially since it is a first post, appears suspiciously like someone trying to get us to do his or her homework for them.

In the first two decades of the twentieth century the national political scene reflected a growing American belief in the ideas of the Progressive movement. The presidencies of Theodore Roosevelt (TR), William Howard Taft, and Woodrow Wilson, where all glorious and defined in their own manner, but varied in other respects. Although all of these presidents were accomplished and served their country well, in my opinion, I think TR was the most successful and Taft was the most unsuccessful in the Progressive revolution era. I believed the TR made the first step for the developing America while Taft just flow what TR already set up. And I want to know more about Taft but I done have enough information

Teddy Roosevelt.

It can be argued that the Federal Reserve was Wilson's legacy to the country. He lived to regret playing such an instrumental role in its establishment.

Actually Wilson never lived to regret signing the Federal Reserve Act, that is one of the great hoaxes of the internet as no one and I mean no can find a single reference where Wilson expressed such regret.

Taft was not that far removed from TR as far as their goals were concerned; the two men differed mostly on the means -- Roosevelt preferring direct action while Taft, who had the strongest Judicial background of any President, naturally preferred less-precisely defined legislation which the courts cold fine-tune as necessary. When his later appointment as Chief Justice is factored in, a case can be made for Taft as one of our most successful Presidents.

Taft's wife Helen was also, for her time, an "activist" First lady; not even a stroke suffered during her tenure in the White House stopped her. Doris Kearns Goodwin's new book, The Bully Pulpit, is an excellent portrait of the times.
