Dr. History, however, has a prescription to get Harding out of the historical basement. It is time for a bit of revisionism.
Let us take the main charges against Harding and see if we can spin them:
1. Unable to stand up to his corrupt friends
- Loyal man, who remember those who got him to the top.
- Not an intellectual snob
- Able to delegate authority to experts
- Valued private enterprise
- Open to new experiences
Now how can any man you can describe as far-sighted, open and loyal ever be voted America's worst president?
