William Taft and Theodore Roosevelt had a lot of the same views on things. They wanted the same thing for the United States - success. But one particular event caused their alliance to deminish. When William Taft presented his Anti-trust policy and fired one of Roosevelt's old friends and allies Gifford Pinchot, Roosevelt felt betrayed. Roosevelt feared that Taft would take down the party with him, so in 1912 he tried to replace him as the Republican candidate.

Tomorrow we will be flying up to New Haven, Connecticut to visit Yale University and learn more about William Taft and Gerald Ford and their experiences there. It's going to be a long flight so I better get some rest. Goodnight!

My advice would be to be clear when firing people and consider all the outcomes.
