RE: Wrap UpSylvia Glover 9/29/2012 11:58:53 PMModified:9/30/2012 12:39 AMAlthough Johnson is generally regarded as the most unsuccessful of the accidental presidents and Roosevelt the most successful, the two presidents have much in common. Both succeeded popular assassinated leaders and assumed the presidency with a high degree of popular support.RE: Wrap UpSylvia Glover 9/30/2012 12:22:15 AMModified:9/30/2012 12:40 AMdisregardRE: Wrap UpWilliam Brozenick 9/29/2012 3:00:49 AM
Iwas ten years old when President Richard Nixon resigned, because of the Watergate scandal. Gerald Ford became president and remained president for almost two and a half years. Gerald Ford ran for president in 1976 and lost the election to Jimmy Carter.President Ford had a tremendous task in front of him, trying to bring normalcy back to a nation reeling from war and social revolution. I do not feel Ford had enough time to accomplish much. He was not a bad president either in my opinion. However, the political arena wanted a change during his presidency.President Carter began his Inaugural speech by saying, "For myself and for our Nation, I want to thank my predecessor for all he has done to heal our land."

During his presidency, LBJ increased American activity in the Vietnam war from 60,000+ to 550,000+ American military soliders. There was much protest over the Vietnam war, including riots. The American Public as a whole did not support the war. Because of this, LBJ's presidency could be looked at at unsuccessful. After serving just two years of Kennedy's term, he ran for reelection and won. In the 1968 election, he announced that he would not be running. He had considered it but changed his mind because of his ailing health and his poor performance in the polls, decided to end his bed. He died two days after what would have been the end of his second term.

A native of Virginia, Tyler served as a state legislator, governor, U.S. representative, and U.S. senator before being elected Vice President in 1840. He was the first to succeed to the office of President on the death of the incumbent, succeeding William Henry Harrison. Tyler's opposition to nationalism and emphatic support of states' rights endeared him to his fellow Virginians but alienated him from most of the political allies that brought him to power in Washington. His presidency was crippled by opposition from both parties. John Tyler opposed the Whig platform and vetoed several of their proposals. As a result, most of his cabinet resigned, and the Whigs, dubbing him
