Woodrow Wilson

Having finally finished reading John Milton Cooper Jr's biography of the 28th President of the United States, I have a sense of profound relief similar, I imagine, to what Senator Henry Cabot Lodge felt when Wilson finally departed the White House in 1921.

The most surprising thing I learned from this book about Wilson that I did not previously know: he actually sought a third term as President after suffering his debilitating stroke. That surely confirms Cooper's conclusion that the stroke caused Wilson to be delusional.
