The First Hundred Days from Wilson to Trump

Not everyone can be an FDR, but everyone tries. A look at the American tradition of 100 days – the period in which the President, supposedly, must get everything done.  A White House mastering it, and another White House, besieged by the press, not mastering it.  A professor turned politician driving Congress in a forgotten fight.

We discuss:

  • Wilson’s Whirlwind 100 Days
  • Napoleon and the Origin of “100 Days”
  • FDR’s Example – Is it Fair?
  • What it All Means for Today
