Ability to lead today

Teddy Roosevelt would be a great leader today, he could affect this country more today than he did when he was president, but I do not think that he is liberal enough to get elected. He could do many great things in our society today, but I do not believe that he could get the majority of the people to back him because he could not appeal to our increasingly liberal nation. Even if he were to get elected he could end up with a Democratic Congress and he would be totally useless in this situation.
