"During nadler. Our first caller, Mark. I think that Trump should be impeached tossed out. And of course, Marc social Mike Pence. I'm not quite sure what Pence pinson's done to autumn off. But I'm sure there's list. Is this the new standard? Are we going to now say, well, I'll tell you he paid women money. He's out of here. This Email in from Bill. Donald Trump is simply unfortunately, continuing Donald well-worn path followed by almost all of his presidential predecessors. They maybe silent Cal Coolidge. The big difference. Is that the modern mass media has historically kept their collective mouth shut during most of the previous events. Yes. Donald Trump is sinful, ma'am that disappoints me. But it doesn't surprise me. I would possibly not have voted for him. If the Democrats are put up a more moral candidate. I would like to be able to vote for somebody someday. It was both capable and highly moral. I have not and I did not. That's the problem. I mean, you you you're not voting either Donald Trump or Mother Theresa voting, Hillary Clinton or. Some Saint you're you're voting one flawed human being it gets another flawed human being and these two are more flawed than most. But as far as what he has accomplished as president. I think that I was concerned. This guy would be a populist without any conservative values. He is clearly governing with conservative values, particularly the most important areas, which are the courts. We already have two new supreme court justices, and the prospect is we might have one or two more depending on if he stays for one term or for to Ruth beat against Berg, of course, says she's gonna stay forever until the guy's office. Well, she may she may not have the capacity to it becomes a matter of judgement. At some point Mike is not him. He's next up on talk radio. Six eighty WCBS. Good morning. Thank you. Good morning, Bruce. I have a feeling if Williams is concerned as the next United States attorney General James Comey. Hillary Clinton will have a lot to worry about. Well, I hope so. To be honest. I I hope that he says we have to reexamine this because some things were missed and particularly go after Hillary Clinton who was in. So clearly in violation of the law that we're still kind of shaking our heads about the dual system of Justice that exists in this country one for us and the other for the select few. Yes ran polo came out with a negative comment about waiting for. Lindsey Graham lunch. We played rand Paul's comment earlier about Burr, Houston, -cerned about some of the civil libertarian issues that he's very invested in that respect his point of view. I personally think it should be very hard for the number Kratz to vote against this guy because they voted for him, and we're very pleased with the work. He did last time who's in Washington. So we'll see how plays out. And I just had one last question for you is is anti Harris ever term for. No, no, no, no, no, not at all. Not at all they're being a little unclear as to who's sponsoring these ads. But they've they bought the Clinton Toronto mayor saying basically that the this administration is trying to do bad things. Make sure you talked to Eddie Harris will Zama that might face your call. Appreciate Bruce Elliott show. Talkradio six eighty WCBS..

"Show on seventy seven. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. How many schlaize is here? And she's has an intellectual biography and a romance of calculus, you'll becomes the president of the United States by the accidents that happen in office everybody at that point was living with the memory of how teddy Roosevelt the Colonel TR Roosevelt became president the assassination of McKinley. These are days in which they'd watched McKinley within memory they'd seen McKinley assassinated they could reach back perhaps not as far as Lincoln. But they knew that at any moment people are swept away by a disease or accident. So your elected officials are fragile and it is now September nineteen nineteen Coolidge elected in nineteen eighteen when McCall decides not to run again, he is now governor any must face the people every year the Boston police force decides or is move to. Join in this fever of organized labor striking for better wages, better conditions against the owners are in this case the people of Boston. The dramatic moment is September eleventh nineteen nineteen the strike is more than a week old. There are tempers out of control people have died because the police have withdrawn their protection Coolidge has moved to call in the guard the national guard and patrol the streets of Boston will this strike stand up to Samuel compress. For example, is in New York preparing for a steel strike or will other strike in sympathy with the police are the department stores safe is are eight stern safe from pillagers from thugs and suddenly from and this is a very dramatic moment for Amadeus books. Suddenly from Montana, the president of the United States. Woodrow Wilson, the inheritor of the progressive label, the leader of the country, the savior of the world whose campaign in all directions. To make world safer democracy. He's a democrat. And he's watching this trouble for a Republican governor in Massachusetts. And he is moved to say that the police strike is a threat to civilization amity. That is a moment that strikes like an asteroid falling on earth. Suddenly Wilson looks to support Coolidge. Did he mean to do that is that an accident avenue? I'm not sure he wanted to support Coolidge politically. But what hap- it's one of those moments where a governor shows up a sitting president. We're upstages is the word, right? So Wilson had been fudging around on the issue of these militant strikes. That's because it was completely understandable. If you look at what was going on in nineteen nineteen they had promised raises to workers after the war the workers away to patiently. Now, the war was over where were the wage increases and instead of the, but yet the employers could not afford the wage increases, they were in economic uncertainty plunging into recession, so very difficult moment, politically and the general idea of the progressives was to conciliate with the workers. Right. And the workers knew that. So in the case of the Boston police just to imagine their position they had come back from the war having served well, or they had served double hard over time during the war and the wonderful books about the Boston. And what they did hour by hour are available online in the Boston libraries for. They were underpaid. Definitely there was inflation. No one was acknowledging it, but it was there. So they they had rats in. There's excuse me rats and their station houses, they were not striking for revolution. They had affiliated with them. Who is nice and a friend of Wilson and the AFL they weren't with the wobbly and they thought that their little strike. Well, Coolidge would come around. Right. The governor of Massachusetts who happen because the anomalies of Massachusetts along with the police Commissioner to be in charge and. Kujat every reason to come around personally hidden election in several months as we mentioned before he was famous for getting along with the ethnics. The police have Boston were Irish-American. So they were ethnic. So he was committing political suicide if he did not conciliate and yet because of the violence because of what he saw Coolidge fired the policeman. He said there is no right by anybody to strike against the public safety. It's a famous sentence anywhere any time and everyone stop the world stopped the police stopped. They couldn't believe that the police horses who missed their masters could not believe that Coolidge would fire. These nice policeman Coolidge himself could not believe it and got sick. But he did to make the point you cannot hold everyone hostage to organize labor causes and the president traveling and he was preaching for his Versailles. Suggestion of the league of nations. All of a sudden turns to the Boston police dry can says this is a threat to civilisation that looks to break the strength of the strike, although it goes on for several days in the militia fill the streets of Boston and their machine gun posts set up, and you mentioned the horse. It's a famous horse Duffy recognized his former master the now defrocked policeman in. I think it was Harvard square. It's very sad moments. Budweiser commercial. By the police for his master, the point is we all have great sympathy. Policemen. But we needed a YouTube in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Oh my God. It's in the Boston Globe. Police the police break Wilson Coolidge. Fires them. He won't hire them back. They break and he stands by it. And this brings him to the attention of the national Republican party. And we must include this as an intellectual biography. How does a Coolidge find strength in Shays rebellion? Seventeen eighty seven. But he looks back. You know, why they would ever do something as as difficult as this one is thing is the rule of law. They broke the rules the policemen. Right. And I it was there was much rebellion in the United States. There were it would make a Occupy Wall street looks very tame compared with what happened when these angry soldiers came home from World War One with pain missing limb. No antibiotics and Martin of money, right and Coolidge looks back to a discussion in Massachusetts. After all the difficult times after this rebellion over debt, right Shays rebellion and money, and to to a farmer who said, well, we don't all like the rules. The particular rules in the constitution. But it's probably better to have a rule then to have no rule have chaos to have the musket of death presented to your breast as the farmer said. So Coolidge quotes a story about energy. Versus the rule of law. Suddenly Coolidge is a national figure recognized by not just the Stearns and the people of Boston and the people of Massachusetts. But by Lord, high mighty himself, Senator lodge who gives a an interview that amity quotes saying, you know, the next president shouldn't be my age seventy should be ten years younger or maybe twenty years younger and just so happens that calculus is forty eight in one thousand nine hundred nineteen come nineteen twenty the Republicans draw out their convention in Chicago is very dramatic the the smoke filled room with the Blackstone hotel. This is the party trying to knit together. After the rebellion of the bull moose eight years before Warren Harding of Ohio is chosen to be the standard bearer. And then they turned to the man in all the headlines calculus for the vice presidency that in itself is a transformation for Coolidge because he's elected over Cox and Frank Roosevelt in the national tickets. But I want to go now to March of nineteen twenty. Three at the close of the Senate session lodge is now leading the Senate under the Harding administration. Cal Coolidge, the vice president is president of the Senate. And you have a moment amity that I that leaped out of the page at me, it's traditional ceremonial for lodge to move a as leading the Senate to move to. Thank the president for this session closing the session in March he just chooses not to wise lodge, insulting the president. And how does Coolidge regarded, well, we all have someone in our life. Who does that? Right. Who friends friends one day build us up in private and in public? Never neglects any opportunity never fails to take any opportunity to pull rank on us lodge was selfish. And he was the boss of the Senate. Although not the official one official one was of course, the vice president that's the US in this role has always been difficult as other other politicians have noticed because you're not really president of much when you're president of the Senate, you you you can veto you have that that you can cast a deciding vote when there's a tie and lodge just wanted to pull rank on Coolidge and show everyone else. Once again, the Coolidge was not important, but lodge was sickle. So you we're tracing this arc lodge exit cooler John to run for president then failed to support in in Chicago at the famous nineteen twenty convention was more interested in his own causes fighting with Wilson over World War One and league of name. Nations and so on and therefore trash someone from his own state. What we all have people like this in our lives. And then colluded did make vice president and logic made his life difficult for those years. So it was pretty low and Coolidge felt pretty low. And we have a lot of evidence of that. But life takes its turn to the Harding administration was now extremely damaged by scandal and a rumor of scandal and Harding's inability to say no to the government in Washington to increase costs, especially the Veterans Administration. Harding was making concessions. He was a product of the progressive idea that you have to compromise with labor or with any demands on Washington Coolidge, did not go along with this Hammadi says that Coolidge was even bothered by the morning gun at Fort Myer because it reminded him how much money they were giving away to the VA. We now go to that dramatic moment in American history Coolidge, grace and calculus are asleep early in Plymouth in Vermont Plymouth rock near at their father's home, August second and there awakened when the phone rings down. Stairs, and the father John Calvin Coolidge answers the phone and calls up to Cal Coolidge with what you describe amity. And I believe is very accurate for the moment. A tremor in his voice, the vice president knew immediately. This was bad trouble. Warren Harding is dead. So I go to the fact that calculus is now the president of the United States. I like the dinner party in Englewood, Dwight Morrow is there I believe in so's Robert frost, the former president of Amherst and Morrow takes the call. I hope I get this. Right. It might have been sticks. Call but I think Mario takes the call comes back into the room and the dinner party says what is it? What is it? Where's why are you so grim, and he says Calvin Coolidge is president of the United States? But those are th there are so many details frost is a poet. Maybe Michael John is there to the president at this. Imagine a dinner party of a fancy man from a big investment Bank. Dwight morrow. And he learns that so many likes very much as always wanted to help. But who was kind of not very popular in college. And who, you know, Morrow had blackballed Coolidge for entry into a fraternity this this friend of yours is suddenly president someone you knew when you were twenty or eighteen or nineteen is president Calvin Coolidge is president and Robert frost recorded this. I believe that's how I know it, and that's how it came to be in the book the poet who was teaching at Amherst their college at that time. You just can't believe it your old friend, and they were friends despite the fraternity is president of the United States and there's a lodge. Also heard this lodge was still alive and. Wrote that logic did get a phone call. What this means Calvin Coolidge is president. Right. Right. Right. Right. Lifetime. This had happened to him, of course, because plot and others had made a similar remarkable teddy Roosevelt when he wound up wound up to be president of the United States many years before that darn Cowboys president of the United States. Now, we must turn to the campaign of twenty four because this isn't electoral biography, and the man we remember Cal Coolidge and the good times of the nineteen twenties. That's a product of everything you've heard so far the thrift the Yankee the brevity the caution the stubbornness and the vision all one man it blessed in the Coolidge administration. Amity slices. Book is Coolidge. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Balance of.

"In the twenty first century and established it clearly in his time in the White House. We're looking back to his childhood and this young man Calvin Coolidge living in a boardinghouse house across the street. This odd. Fact if him shaving with his hat on his spotted by young woman named grace grace Goodhew who teaches at a school for the deaf Amady. Congratulations and very good evening to you. And thank you for grace Goodhew spotting calculus shaving with his hat on. What did she make of him? And what did he make of her when they first met? I she sent him a flower pot. According to your book evening Hammadi evening and thank you for noticing. She saw the man in the in the young man in the boy grew grace Goodhue had wonderful perceptions about people. She was empathetic. She was a teacher. She got the death to speak. Right. And she saw in that quiet man with the hat taking himself. So seriously, she saw the Ambien and determination. And also the the good spirit. But it's an interesting way for a girl to meet a guy. Yeah. Right. Yeah. And I do in the book, you know? Really, I think wanted someone to break in to him. He wasn't going to break the other way. She was seen colorful and charismatic and he was restrained. He has red hair she has dark hair, but they're both from Vermont. They're both Yankees. Let's start with calculus. He's born into a farming community and a farming town in his father Coolidge, Cal Coolidge is a farmer as well. As a part time legislature the way you are in Vermont. His mother dies Cal coolest mother dies when he's twelve. He admires his father a great deal. What does he take from his father, the farmer legislator that a man can do everything there were very few things? His father couldn't do you. See he ran the store they had the post office there. He was the sheriff. They're wonderful books in the Calvin Coolidge memorial foundation in that area, which is Plymouth notch. Vermont you I saw what his father's notebooks contained snow tax collect or pay. Hey money for one person to take care of the little minutia of town management of the community chest that what his father didn't was. Of course, the town meeting what we might call selectmen, you know, they had small-time legislating small-time government, hiring schoolteacher. And and it knows as there wasn't even mandatory highschool and Coolidge sister qualified to teach high school or teach school rather. Sorry. I misspoke at an early age like thirteen or fourteen or something like that. And Coolidge, I think did as well. So imagine a tiny village and the incredible struggle for self sufficient, save their Yankees. And they're very proud of it. They hardly talk about it. They just act upon it every day my measure of Yankees. And I know something of my family is diligence industry and thrift to those terms apply to Coolidge when he's in Vermont. Well, oh my gosh. Yes, they're they're all thrifty. There. There wasn't much money. They had some wealth. But it wasn't always in the form of money. So you see his grandmother worked as a midwife? She wove. The father. They tried all sorts of things grandfather raised had a stallion for awhile. You know, raised put him out to stud, they had all different ways of raising money in this very poor place where it was hard to farm. Not like the midwest right where where later authorities went into that village and didn't find much that was arable. And yet they stayed in the family, particularly we're the ones who stayed. And that's what the beginning of the book is about and not all of them did. Well, right. So so you have one branch of the family that is the particular line to the president John Coolidge in his son, Calvin Coolidge, staying up others leaving impart like John Deere. Remember, John Deere who? Are the great innovator with our modern tractors the John Deere company did leave Vermont because he couldn't make it. They're afraid of debt in bankruptcy. Coolidge is left to. But these particular Coolidge is believed they were able to see because of their thrust striking to me. It is John Calvin Coolidge junior who becomes president John Calvin Coolidge is father John Calvin the sponsor of what becomes the Presbyterian church. But the inheritor the Calvin part, this is the inheritor of the Puritans who set themselves apart their covenant with God, John Calvin Coolidge junior. The president is not especially churched, nor is he God. Fearing is that a significant factor in his life? But I do think he's God fearing Calvin president Calvin Coolidge, but he's not Cherchi. No his did that I mean in marriage. We sent him to divide these things up and grace was Turkey. Grace took him to the Edward's church in Northampton where he lived where they met, and I think took him in Washington to Dr Pierce to congregational church. And he did eventually join a church. You, you know, you you're if you're steeped in the church, you don't always need to join a church, and there is a political component to if you are a politician to belong to a church. And and Coolidge was also a politician and he wanted to be friends with everyone. And he thought if he joined one church officially that meant he wasn't joining another inequalities background. You can find a little bit of Baptist a little bit of Methodist and politically that was better. But but he was God fearing he was deeply spiritual. Let's take him off to Amherst college because he prepares for school. But he's not he's not an especially gifted scholar, and he works very hard. But by the time he gets to Amherst he is not ready for the first year. He then retreats to do some additional studying. He has the intellectual skills, but he's not an athlete. He arrives back at Amherst college. And this is a centerpiece of Yonki scholarship at the time. It's located in the middle of Massachusetts, the frontier, the part that were regarded as the wild west, and he's surrounded by names that are significant we recognize the Dickinson's, for example today, the family. That gave us Emily Dickinson. The poet at the same time Coolidge does blossoms when he's at Amherst. But he doesn't blossom to join things is this where we establish that he is a stronger individual than he is a team player. I I he had. Yes, Coolidge was not always a joiner he joined the Republican party. But he was quite particular about not joining. He was one of those children who doesn't join on principle, and then feels a little lonely. I mean, I love this story because it's a story of someone who almost failed so many times and yet prevailed through his persistence, and so when you get sick almost doesn't get into college. He actually kind of falls apart when he sits the Amherst exam. Imagine a young man sitting there wing hundred eighteen pounds or so one hundred twenty one pounds with red hair red with red hair and pants that are too short for fashion sitting and writing test and deciding he has bronchitis than indeed getting something bad probably bronchitis or pneumonia and running home. And that's it for the year. He's not entering Amherst. They all expected, and then it was really only because if you loopholes in a recession that Coolidge did get into Amherst. There was a loophole a school called Saint John's Berea wonderful school that still exists. Am had a system whereby one could get a certificate of entrance to Amherst. If you went up there and were a student and his old head from his his school. Which is in love, though, wrote Saint John's Berea and Coolidge went up there and the school needed the money. So they took this young man and prepped him for Amherst and with that certificate Coolidge got in and then was promptly basically ignored by every fraternity in this intensely Greek school Amherst, so we got into Amherst, but he's certainly didn't get into the center of the social life. He's surrounded by men who will go on to be prominent. I just want to get him back to grace before we turn to his life. As a politician grace finds a man who is older than many. He has not married, although he has political ambitions here in north Hampton does. She does she approve of his political ambitions. I think she does what she sees is the essential seriousness of Calvin whatever party. He is. And it's a different kind of marriage. It's an old fashioned marriage. She called their marriage a harness which sounds unromantic for two and that they have. She said they had to work together and one horse had to be stronger horse. And but it's also a great love story because she subordinated some of herself to him. He also subordinated some of infidels for her and off they went when they get together. The the people were appalled that a such. A quiet guy is Calvin this young lawyers, a young attorney just recently read the law got the most beautiful girl in town. Let's let's say she's not just somewhat pretty she was beautiful. She had perfect complexion new read all the friends of Calvin who kind of thought they were the only ones who liked him were surprised Calvin got grace. How did he do that book is Coolidge Amady schlaize is the author? When next we meet Cal Coolidge. He is Lieutenant governor of Massachusetts being celebrated by the Amherst alumni, I'm John bachelor. This is the John Batchelor show. Did you know that studies have shown did you know that studies have shown that we need over ten servings of fruits and veggies every single day.

"John Batchelor show. Seven. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show. How many schlaize is here? And she's has an intellectual biography and a romance of calculus should becomes the president of the United States by the accidents that happen in office everybody at that point was living with the memory of how teddy Roosevelt the Colonel TR Roosevelt became president the assassination of McKinley. These are days in which they'd watched McKinley within memory they'd seen McKinley assassinated they could reach back perhaps not as far as Lincoln. But they knew that at any moment people are swept away by a disease or accident. So your elected officials are fragile and it is now September nineteen ninety Coolidge elected in nineteen eighteen when McCall decides not to run again, he is now governor and he must face the people every year the Boston police force decides. Or is move. Move to join in this fever of organized labor striking for better wages, better conditions against the owners are in this case the people of Boston. The dramatic moment is September eleventh nineteen nineteen the strike is more than a week old. There are tempers out of control people have died because the police have withdrawn their protection Coolidge has moved to call in the guard the national guard and patrol the streets of Boston will this strike stand up to Samuel compress, for example, his in New York preparing for a steel strike or will other strike in sympathy with the police are the department stores safe r h Stearns safe from pillagers from thugs and suddenly from and this is a very dramatic moment. For amity spoke suddenly from Montana, the president of the United States. Woodrow Wilson, the inheritor of the progressive label, the leader of the country, the savior of the world, who's campaigned in all. Directions to make world safer democracy. He's a democrat. And he's watching this trouble for a Republican governor in Massachusetts. And he is moved to say that the police strike is a threat to civilization amity. That is a moment that strikes like an asteroid falling on earth. Suddenly Wilson looks to support Coolidge. Did he mean to do that is that an accident avenue? I'm not sure he wanted to support Coolidge politically. But what hap- it's one of those moments where a governor shows up a sitting president where upstages is stored. Right. So Wilson had been fudging around on the issue of these militant strikes. That's because it was completely understandable. If you look at what was going on in nineteen nineteen they had promised raises to workers after the war the workers away to patiently. Now, the war was over where were the wage increases and instead of the, but yet the employers could not afford the wage increases, they were in economic uncertainty plunging into recession, so very difficult moment, politically and the general idea of the progressives was to conciliate with the workers. Right. And I the workers knew that. So in the case of the Boston police just to imagine their position they had come back from the war having served well, or they had served double hard over time during the war and the wonderful books about the Boston. Police and what they did hour by hour are available online in the Boston libraries for. They were underpaid. Definitely there was inflation. No one was acknowledging it, but it was there. So they had Ratzinger's excuse me rats and their station houses, they were not striking for revolution. They had affiliated with Sam Gombar who was nice and a friend of Wilson and the AFL they weren't with the wobbly and they thought that their little strike. Well, Coolidge would come around the governor of Massachusetts who happened because the anomalies of Massachusetts along with the police Commissioner to be in charge and. Kujat every reason to come around personally hidden election in several months as we mentioned before he was famous Coolidge for getting along with the ethnics. The police have Boston were I rish American. So they were ethnic. So he was committing political suicide if he did not conciliate and yet because of the violence because of what he saw Coolidge fired the policeman. He said there is no right by anybody to strike against the public safety. It's a famous sentence anywhere any time and everyone stop the world stopped the police stopped. They couldn't believe that the police horses who missed their masters could not believe that Coolidge would fire. These nice policeman Coolidge himself could not believe it and got sick. But he did to make the point you cannot hold everyone hostage to organize labor causes. And the president traveling and he was preaching for his size suggestion of the league of nations. All of a sudden turns to the Boston police dry can says this is a threat to civilization that looks to break the strength of the strike, although it goes on for several days in the militia filled the streets of Boston and their machine gun posts set up. A you mentioned the horse. It's a famous horse. Duffy who recognized his former master the now defrocked policeman in. I think it was Harvard square. It's very sad moment. Budweiser commercial by the phrase master, the point is we all have great sympathy. Policemen. But we needed a YouTube in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Oh, my God is in the Boston Globe. Police the police break Wilson Coolidge. Fires them. He won't hire them back. They break and he stands by it. And this brings him to the attention of the national Republican party. And we must include this as an intellectual biography. How does a Coolidge fine strengthen Shays rebellion? Seventeen eighty seven. But he looks back know why would you ever do something as as difficult as this one is thing is the rule of law? They broke the rules the policemen. Right. And it was there was much rebellion in the United States there. It would make a Occupy Wall street looks very tame compared with what happened when these angry soldiers came home from World War One with pain missing a limb. No antibiotics and Martin of money, right and Coolidge looks back to a discussion in Massachusetts. After all the difficult times after this rebellion over debt, right Shays rebellion and money, and to to a farmer who said, well, we don't all like the rules that particular rules in the constitution. But it's probably better to have a rule then to have no have chaos have the musket of death presented to your breast as the farmer said. So Coolidge quotes a story about enter key. Versus the rule of law. Suddenly Coolidge is a national figure recognized by not just the Stearns and the people of Boston and the people of Massachusetts. But by Lord, high mighty himself, Senator lodge who gives a an interview that amick quotes, saying, you know, the next president shouldn't be my age seventy should be ten years younger or maybe twenty years younger and just so happens that calculus is forty eight in nineteen nineteen come nineteen twenty the Republicans draw out their convention in Chicago is very dramatic the the smoke filled room at the Blackstone hotel. This is the the party trying to knit together. After the rebellion of the bull moose eight years before Warren Harding of Ohio is chosen to be the standard bearer. And then they turned to the man in all the headlines calculus for the vice presidency that in itself is a transformation for Coolidge because he's elected over Cox and Frank Roosevelt in the national tickets. But I want to go now to March of nineteen twenty. Three at the close of the Senate session lodge is now leading the Senate under the Harding administration calculus. The vice president is president of the Senate, and you have a moment amity that I that leaped out of the page at me, it's traditional ceremonial for lodge to move a as leading the Senate to move to. Thank the president for this session closing the session in March he just chooses not to wise lodge, insulting the president. And how does Coolidge regarded, well, we all have someone in our life. Who does that? Right. Who friends friends one day builds us up in private and then in public never neglects any opportunity never fails to take any opportunity to pull rank on us lodge was selfish. And he was the boss of the Senate. Although not the official one official one was of course, the vice president that's the US, and this this role has always been difficult as other politicians have noticed because you're not really president of much when you're president of the Senate, you'll be you can veto you have that that you can cast a deciding vote when there's a tie and lodge just wanted to pull rank on Coolidge and show everyone else. Once again, the Coolidge was not important, but lodge was sickle. So you we're tracing this arc lodge exit cooler John to run for president then failed to support him in Chicago at the famous nineteen twenty convention was more interested in his own causes fighting with Wilson over World War One league. Nations and so on and therefore trash someone from his own state. What we all have people like this in our lives, and then colluded did make vice president and lauded made his life difficult for those years. So it was pretty low and Coolidge felt pretty low. And we have a lot of evidence of that. But life takes its turn to the Harding administration was now extremely damaged by scandal and a rumor of scandal and Harding's inability to say no to the government in Washington to increase cost, especially the Veterans Administration. Harding was making concessions. He was a product of the progressive idea that you have to compromise with labor or with any demands on Washington Coolidge, did not go along with this Hammadi says that Coolidge was even bothered by the morning gun at Fort Myer because it reminded him how much money they were giving away to the VA. We now go to that dramatic moment in American history. Cool it grace and calculus are asleep early in Plymouth. In Vermont, Plymouth rock near at their father's home, August second. And there are awakened when the phone rings downstairs and the father John Calvin Coolidge answers the phone and calls up to Cal Coolidge with what you describe amity. And I believe is very accurate for the moment tremor in his voice. The vice president knew immediately. This was bad trouble. Warren Harding is dead. So I go to the fact that calculus is now the president of the United States. I like the dinner party in Englewood, Dwight Morrow is there I believe in so's Robert frost, the former president of Amherst and Morrow takes the call. I hope I get this. Right. It might have been stern sticks to call. But I think Morrow takes the he comes back into the room and the dinner party says what is it? What is it? Where's why are you so grim, and he says Calvin Coolidge is president of the United States? But those there are so many details frost is the poet. Maybe Mickle John is there to the president at this. Imagine a dinner party of a fancy man from a big invest. Bank Dwight Morrow, and he learns that somebody likes very much as always wanted to help. But who was kind of not very popular in college. And who were you know, Morrow had blackballed Coolidge for entry into a fraternity this this friend of yours is suddenly president someone you knew when you were twenty or eighteen or nineteen is president Calvin Coolidge is president and Robert frost recorded this. I believe that's how I know it, and that's how it came to be in the book the poet who was teaching at Amherst their college at that time. But you you just can't believe it your old friend, and they were friends despite the fraternity is president of the United States and there's a lodge. Also heard this lodge was still alive and would wrote that law did get a phone call. What this means Calvin Coolidge is president. Right right twice in his lifetime. This had happened to him, of course, because Platt and others had made a similar remark about teddy Roosevelt when he wound up we'll wind up to be president of the United States many years before that darn Cowboys president of the United States. Now, we must turn to the campaign of twenty four because this isn't electoral biography, and the man we remember calculus and the good times of the nineteen twenties. That's a product of everything you've heard so far.

"Thirtieth president of the United States. However, let's medium in one thousand nine hundred four he's a young, man. And he has great prospects. He's living in Northampton, Massachusetts and one morning as we can believe his habit. He is shaving with his hat on. He's in a boardinghouse. He's a careful, man. And the shaving is perhaps the last duty before he goes out into the world defined business for himself across the street. I learned in a wonderful, new intellectual biography Coolidge by amity schlaize. This is the woman who wrote forgotten man. And we're looking back before FDR before the depression to a president who established a foundation that is very useful in the twenty first century and established it clearly in his time in the White House. We're looking back to his childhood and this young man Calvin Coolidge living in a boarding. House and across the street. This odd fact of him shaving with his hat on is spotted by young woman named grace grace Goodhew who teaches at a school for the deaf amity. Congratulations and very good evening to you. And thank you for grace Goodhew spotting calculus shaving with his hat on. What did she make of him? And what did he make of her when they first match? I she sent him a flower pot. According to your book could evening amity evening. And thank you for noticing. He saw the man and. In the young man in the boy grew grace Goodhue had wonderful perceptions about people she was entered Dedic. He was a teacher. She got the death to speak and she saw in that quiet man with the hat taking himself. So seriously. She saw the am Bishen and the determination. And also the good spirit. The it's an interesting way for a girl to meet a guy. Yeah. Right. Yeah. And I do in the books. You know, I think Coolidge wanted someone to break in to him. He wasn't going to break the other way. She was seen as colorful and mad charismatic, and he was restrained. He has red hair she has dark hair, but they're both from Vermont. They're both Yankees. Let's start with calculus. He's born into a farming community and a farming town in his father Coolidge, Cal Coolidge is pharma as well. As a part time legislature the way you are in Vermont, his mother dies. Calculus mother dies when he's twelve. He admires his father a great deal. What does he take from his father, the farmer legislator that a man can do everything they were very few things? His father couldn't do you. See he ran the store they had the post office there. He was the sheriff. They're wonderful books in the Calvin Coolidge memorial foundation in that area, which is not Vermont. You I saw what? His father's notebooks contained and there were no tax collect or pay. Hey money for one person to take care of the little minutia of town management of the community chest that his father did. And was of course, the town meeting what we might call selectmen, you know, they had small-time legislating small-time government hiring the school teacher. And and it knows as there wasn't even mandatory highschool and Coolidge is sister qualified to teach high school or teach school rather. Sorry. I misspoke at an early age like thirteen or fourteen or something like that. And Coolidge, I think did as well. So imagine a tiny village. And the incredible struggle for self sufficiency. They're Yankees, and they're very proud of it. They hardly talk about it. They just act upon it every day my measure of Yankees. And I know something of my family is diligence industry and thrift to those terms apply to Coolidge when he's in Vermont. Well, oh my gosh. They're all thrifty there. There wasn't much money. They had some wells. But it wasn't always in the form of money. So you see his grandmother worked as a midwife? She woes. The father. They tried all sorts of things whose grandfather grazed had a stallion for awhile. You know, raise put him out to stud. They had all different ways of raising money in this very poor place where it's hard to farm not like the mid west, right? Where later authorities went into that village and didn't find much arable. And yet they stayed in the Coolidge family, particularly we're the ones who stayed. And that's what the beginning of the book is about and not all of them did. Well, right. So so you have one branch of the family that is the particular line of the president, John Coolidge and his son Calvin Coolidge, staying others leaving like John Deere. Remember, John Deere who are the great innovator with our modern tractors like John Deere company did lever Mont because he couldn't make it. They're afraid of debt and bankruptcy Coolidge is left to. But these particular Coolidge is believed they were able to see because of their thrift striking to me. It is John Calvin Coolidge junior who becomes president John Calvin Coolidge is the father John Calvin the sponsor of what. It becomes the Presbyterian church, but the inheritor the Calvin part, this is the inheritor of the Puritans who set themselves apart their covenant with God, John Calvin Coolidge junior. The president is not especially churched, nor is he God. Fearing is that a significant factor in his life? But I do think he's got hearing Calvin president Calvin Coolidge, but he's not Cherchi. No his wife did that. I mean in marriage. We sent him to divide these things up and grace was Turkey. Grace took him to the Edward's church in Northampton where he lived where they met, and I think took him in Washington to Dr Pierce to the congregational church. And he did eventually join a church, you, you know, you you're if you're steeped in the church, you don't always need to join at church, and there is a political component to if you are a politician to belong to a church and Coolidge was also politician, and he wanted to be friends with everyone. I thought it'd be joined. Church officially that meant he wasn't joining another inequalities background. You can find a little bit of Baptist a little bit of Methodist and politically that was better. But but he was God fearing he was deeply spiritual. Let's take him off to Amherst college because he prepares for school. But he's not he's not an especially gifted scholar any works, very hard. But by the timing gets to Amherst he is not ready for the first year. He then retreats to do some additional studying. He has the intellectual skills, but he's not an athlete. He arrives back at Amherst college. And this is a centerpiece of Yankee scholarship at the time. It's located in the middle of Massachusetts, the frontier, the part that were regarded as the wild west, and he's surrounded by names that are significant we recognize the Dickinson's, for example today, the family that gave us Emily Dickinson. The poet at the same time. Coolidge does blossoms when he's at Amherst. But he doesn't blossom to join things is this where we establish that he is a stronger individual than he is a team player. I I he had. Yes, Coolidge was not always a joiner he joined the Republican party. But he was quite particular about not joining. He was one of those children who doesn't join on principle, and then feels a little lonely. I mean, I love this story because it's a story of someone who almost failed so many times and yet prevailed through his persistence, and so when you get sick almost doesn't get into college. He actually kind of falls apart when he sits the Amherst examined magin, a young man sitting there wing hundred eighteen pounds or so one hundred twenty one pounds with red hair red hair and pants that are too short for fashion sitting and writing a test and deciding he has bronchitis. Getting something bad probably bronchitis or pneumonia and running home. And that's it for the year. He's not entering Amherst. Does they all expected? And then it was really only because if you loopholes in a recession that Coolidge did get into Amherst. There was a loophole a school called Saint John's Bray wonderful school that still exists. An had a system whereby one could get a certificate of insurance too. Amherst if you went up there and were a student and his old head from his school, which is the wrote Saint John's berry and Coolidge went up there and the school needed the money. So they took this young man and prepped him for Amherst and with that certificate Coolidge got in and then was promptly basically ignored by every fraternity in this intensely Greek school Amherst, so we got into Amherst, but he's certainly didn't get into the center of the social life. He's surrounded by men who will go on to be prominent. I just want to get him back to grace before we turn to his life. As a politician grace finds a man who is older than many. He has not married, although he has political ambitions here in north Hampton does. She does she approve of his political ambitions. I think she does which uses the essential seriousness of Calvin whatever party is and it's a different kind of marriage. It's an old fashioned marriage. She called there.

One and volume two is coming out this year one is going to be released. Yes, it's it's later that come out towards the end of this year. I fly even goes from George Washington through teddy Roosevelt the second line. We'll pick it up with Woodrow Wilson until Barack Obama and the crazy election twenty sixteen. Well, now, you were you were an editor of time. Life books were you involved with the civil war time life series? I know I was involved more with espionage books, but my colleagues were involved in those very excellent. That's civil war books by time life. I'll tell you what I I have that collection, and it's absolutely fabulous. It's great just one book after another was so well written and and just historically accurate. I just really appreciate it. Getting those. You're you're also a writer for Jay leno's tonight show. That's right. I have a somewhat very background unusual background. Who who was funny? You're George George H W Bush. You're Jay Leno. Well. The funny thing was the writing shops were somewhat similar. I I mentioned before hell up writing presidential speeches was like making sausage taking bits and pieces from here in their same is true of a of a stand up comedian late night. He'll take from from just about anywhere any subject in piece it altogether. So funny, not the the question that I asked before the break was we've got Donald Trump who's never held elected office. And he he's jumping into the political fray running for the highest office in the land is that ever happened in history before. Almost almost always personally becomes president. Or who runs runs? A a serious bid for president has had a fair amount of political experience at the state or look of a state or federal level. So Trump is quite unusual. A parallel might be of course, Ross Perot was a businessman who ran in nineteen ninety two as an independent and had sort of save appeal as as Trump on issues like trade and NAFTA the giant sucking sound famous quote from parole. Yeah. Sorry. Go ahead. I had Ross Perot on the show when he was running for president and. He he would make statements, and I asked him how he would balance the budget, and he said, well, it would take a long time to explain that. And I said Mr. Perot, I've got a three hour show. It's all yours have at it. The silence was deafening. It's easy out statements. But it's it's hard to lay it out. Even if you're given the time delay it on, and I think that's one of the things that frustrates us as as voters is that we don't hear a lot of that. And we were hearing a lot of shots in the in this campaign. But again, that's not unusual. We've seen that through history. Haven't we? Yes, we have the. We're talking about the parallel of of Trump and and parole of Hillary Clinton's a little easier. Call she's more of a traditional democrat and the Democratic Party, which has moved more towards a sort of a social Democratic Party in the European mode in recent years as as reflected in the Bernie Sanders campaign where he almost denomination. Yeah. We're we're. Yeah. Trump's parallel might be parole might be even the George Wallace George Wallace of Alabama who tried to stop school segregation. But the leader in coordination who ran for president making sixty eight nineteen seventy not so much the segregationists. But still a fire breather and. Very effective third party campaigns those two times. Yeah. George washington. He had a tough second term as well. Didn't he? George Washington to be president for a second term. In fact, he wanted to turn things over to vice president John Adams, but Mr. Hamilton and mister Jefferson became who are bitter rivals by second-term were convinced that if he if he left the scene the country might fall into civil strife even outright civil war. So they they convinced him to stay four more years, but he was plagued by bad healthy at anthrax in his leg in the Monja. Almost died. He had his top aides like Jefferson Hamilton leave him and replaced by mediocrities, and he had something called the whisky rebellion. The result of Mr. Hamilton's tax to fund the new federal government attacks on moonshine on of the farmers and the western frontier rose up in rebellion by the thousands that forced to Washington to put on his military uniform and right out the head of fifteen thousand militia to the Pittsburgh area and put down the rebels. That's right. That's right. Ed when you when you look back at the only constitutional convention that we've had. Do you think that the founding fathers would have been able to put a constitution together? If it would have been for George Washington. I mean, they they needed somebody to be at the head of this to keep things under control. And and to you know, it'd be the mediator. I wouldn't have been George Washington would the would the constitution. Would it have been written? Would it have been as good as it is today? What do you think? Absolutely. Not historians now. No, that's George Washington far from being a figurehead at the convention as what's left for some time. He actually was very powerful figure behind the scene in the years running up to the conventional because convention, he got George Mason Virginia and Samuel chase of Maryland to sign a free trade agreement between the two respective states. This is a few years before the Philadelphia simply and the that's Virginia and Maryland, compact it led to a meeting of five or six dates, Minneapolis. And that led to media all thirteen former colonies Philadelphia with Washington pushing this in the background along with his friends Hamilton as well, as of course, James Madison. The who actually writes the constitution for the most part. I've often thought that George what he he didn't say a lot. But he had the look that only our wives could give us. That's very well. Put he was rather. Like a successful two-term president rather under underrated silent Cal Coolidge. He didn't say too much, but he tended to get things done behind the scenes. You gotta love it. Don't you? Edward mosier is our guest and the book is the two-term jank's. Why most second term presidents stumble and how some succeed volume one volume tomb is soon to come out. We'll take a break.
