PRESIDENT #29 – WARREN G. HARDING

Oh, wow, now this is a president with a story – but not necessarily a good one.

Most people who list presidents in order of effectiveness, put him at the bottom.

Maybe because his presidency was filled with scandals like Tea Pot Dome.

Or maybe because he did things like lose the White House china in a poker game.

Maybe a little bit of both.

The difference between Harding and a president you might think is even worse – Harding didn’t really do anything. According to our tour guide, the highlight of his presidency was dedicating a statue of Simon Bolivar in Central Park.

I’ll tell you more about him in the next couple days.

  1. The scandals, I’m sure our country could’ve done without, but sometimes a president who doesn’t do anything might be better than a president who tries to do too much.
