William Howard Taft

William Howard Taft was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, on September 15, 1857. From a prominent political family, he followed his forebears into law and was on track to be a career jurist, well on his way to his dream job of sitting on the Supreme Court, when he was sidetracked for a term as the 27th U.S. president by his wife and Theodore Roosevelt. Taft finally achieved his dream of being elected chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court in 1921, becoming the only person to have served both as a chief justice and president. Taft died in Washington, D.C., on March 8, 1930. Source:

Grade- C

Taft was not a politician. Taft became grumpy, and depressed. He did not have good leadership. Taft was glad he was stepped done from the presidency. Taft did more things to stop monopoly than Theodore Roosevelt. He gained 100 pounds from being stressed out from the presidency.
