He took office on August 3, , following the sudden death of President Warren G. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals before accepting a post as the first civilian governor of the Philippines in In , Taft took on the role of secretary of war in the administration Woodrow Wilson , the 28th U.

Also helpful in saving Harding's career was the fact that he was popular with, and had done favors for, the more progressive forces that now controlled the Ohio Republican Party.
Harding sought and gained the Republican gubernatorial nomination. At that time, the party was deeply divided between progressive and conservative wings, and could not defeat the united Democrats; he lost the election to incumbent Judson Harmon.
Despite the growing rift between them, both President Taft and former president Roosevelt came to Ohio to campaign for Harding, but their quarrels split the Republican Party and helped assure Harding's defeat.
The party split grew, and in , Taft and Roosevelt were rivals for the Republican nomination. The Republican National Convention was bitterly divided.
At Taft's request, Harding gave a speech nominating the president, but the angry delegates were not receptive to Harding's oratory. Taft was renominated, but Roosevelt supporters bolted the party.
Harding, as a loyal Republican, supported Taft. The Republican vote was split between Taft, the party's official candidate, and Roosevelt, running under the label of the Progressive Party.
Congressman Theodore Burton had been elected as senator in Foraker's place in , and announced that he would seek a second term in the elections.
By this time, the Seventeenth Amendment to the United States Constitution had been ratified, giving the people the right to elect senators, and Ohio had instituted primary elections for the office.
Foraker and former congressman Ralph D. Cole also entered the Republican primary. When Burton withdrew, Foraker became the favorite, but his Old Guard Republicanism was deemed outdated, and Harding was urged to enter the race.
Daugherty claimed credit for persuading Harding to run, "I found him like a turtle sunning himself on a log, and I pushed him into the water.
It was calculated to offend nobody except Democrats. Harding won the primary by 12, votes over Foraker.
Slogan written on Ohio walls and fences, . Harding's general election opponent was Ohio Attorney General Timothy Hogan , who had risen to statewide office despite widespread prejudice against Roman Catholics in rural areas.
In , the start of World War I and the prospect of a Catholic senator from Ohio increased nativist sentiment. Harding did not attack Hogan an old friend on this or most other issues, but he did not denounce the nativist hatred for his opponent.
Harding's conciliatory campaigning style aided him;  one Harding friend deemed the candidate's stump speech during the fall campaign as "a rambling, high-sounding mixture of platitudes, patriotism, and pure nonsense".
When Harding joined the U. Senate, the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress, and were led by President Wilson. As a junior senator in the minority, Harding received unimportant committee assignments, but carried out those duties assiduously.
On two issues, women's suffrage, and the prohibition of alcohol, where picking the wrong side would have damaged his presidential prospects in , he prospered by taking nuanced positions.
As senator-elect, he indicated that he could not support votes for women until Ohio did. Increased support for suffrage there and among Senate Republicans meant that by the time Congress voted on the issue, Harding was a firm supporter.
Harding, who drank,  initially voted against banning alcohol. He voted for the Eighteenth Amendment , which imposed Prohibition , after successfully moving to modify it by placing a time limit on ratification, which was expected to kill it.
Once it was ratified anyway, Harding voted to override Wilson's veto of the Volstead Bill , which implemented the amendment, assuring the support of the Anti-Saloon League.
Harding, as a politician respected by both Republicans and Progressives, was asked to be temporary chairman of the Republican National Convention and to deliver the keynote address.
He urged delegates to stand as a united party. The convention nominated Justice Charles Evans Hughes. In the November presidential election , despite increasing Republican unity, Hughes was narrowly defeated by Wilson.
Harding spoke and voted in favor of the resolution of war requested by Wilson in April that plunged the United States into World War I.
In May , Harding, less enthusiastic about Wilson, opposed a bill to expand the president's powers. In the midterm congressional elections, held just before the armistice, Republicans narrowly took control of the Senate.
Many senators disliked Article X of the League Covenant , that committed signatories to the defense of any member nation that was attacked, seeing it as forcing the United States to war without the assent of Congress.
Harding was one of 39 senators who signed a round-robin letter opposing the League. When Wilson invited the Foreign Relations Committee to the White House to informally discuss the treaty, Harding ably questioned Wilson about Article X; the president evaded his inquiries.
The Senate debated Versailles in September , and Harding made a major speech against it. By then, Wilson had suffered a stroke while on a speaking tour.
With an incapacitated president in the White House and less support in the country, the treaty was defeated. With most Progressives having rejoined the Republican Party, their former leader, Theodore Roosevelt, was deemed likely to make a third run for the White House in , and was the overwhelming favorite for the Republican nomination.
These plans ended when Roosevelt suddenly died on January 6, Harding, while he wanted to be president, was as much motivated in entering the race by his desire to keep control of Ohio Republican politics, enabling his re-election to the Senate in Among those coveting Harding's seat were former governor Willis he had been defeated by James M.
On December 17, , Harding made a low-key announcement of his presidential candidacy. Harding was far more acceptable to the "Old Guard" leaders of the party.
Daugherty, who became Harding's campaign manager, was sure none of the other candidates could garner a majority. His strategy was to make Harding an acceptable choice to delegates once the leaders faltered.
Daugherty established a Harding for president campaign office in Washington run by his confidant, Jess Smith , and worked to manage a network of Harding friends and supporters, including Frank Scobey of Texas clerk of the Ohio State Senate during Harding's years there.
Despite the candidate's work, according to Russell, "without Daugherty's Mephistophelean efforts, Harding would never have stumbled forward to the nomination.
Warren G. There were only 16 presidential primary states in , of which the most crucial to Harding was Ohio. Harding had to have some loyalists at the convention to have any chance of nomination, and the Wood campaign hoped to knock Harding out of the race by taking Ohio.
Wood campaigned in the state, and his supporter, Procter, spent large sums; Harding spoke in the non-confrontational style he had adopted in Harding and Daugherty were so confident of sweeping Ohio's 48 delegates that the candidate went on to the next state, Indiana, before the April 27 Ohio primary.
In Indiana, Harding finished fourth, with less than ten percent of the vote, and failed to win a single delegate.
He was willing to give up and have Daugherty file his re-election papers for the Senate, but Florence Harding grabbed the phone from his hand, "Warren Harding, what are you doing?
Give up? Not until the convention is over. Think of your friends in Ohio! After he recovered from the shock of the poor results, Harding traveled to Boston, where he delivered a speech that according to Dean, "would resonate throughout the campaign and history.
The Republican National Convention opened at the Chicago Coliseum on June 8, , assembling delegates who were bitterly divided, most recently over the results of a Senate investigation into campaign spending, which had just been released.
Johnson was deemed to be behind the inquiry, and the rage of the Lowden and Wood factions put an end to any possible compromise among the frontrunners.
Of the almost 1, delegates, 27 were women—the Nineteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution , guaranteeing women the vote, was within one state of ratification, and would pass before the end of August.
Reporters deemed Harding unlikely to be nominated due to his poor showing in the primaries, and relegated him to a place among the dark horses.
After the convention dealt with other matters, the nominations for president opened on the morning of Friday, June Harding had asked Willis to place his name in nomination, and the former governor responded with a speech popular among the delegates, both for its folksiness and for its brevity in the intense Chicago heat.
Harry M. Daugherty . Four ballots were taken on the afternoon of June 11, and they revealed a deadlock.
The night of June 11—12, , would become famous in political history as the night of the " smoke-filled room. Daugherty , Harding's political manager was the mastermind.
On February 11, , long before the convention, Daugherty predicted:. Daugherty's prediction described essentially what occurred, but historians argue that Daugherty's prediction has been given too much weight in narratives of the convention.
For six hours the leaders considered numerous alternatives, including Wood, Lowden, and Johnson. However, there were objections to all of them.
Headlines in the next morning newspapers suggested intrigue. Historian Wesley M. Bagby argues, "Various groups actually worked along separate lines to bring about the nomination—without combination and with very little contact.
The reassembled delegates had heard rumors that Harding was the choice of a cabal of senators. Although this was not true, delegates believed it, and sought a way out by voting for Harding.
Lodge then declared a three-hour recess, to the outrage of Daugherty, who raced to the podium, and confronted him, "You cannot defeat this man this way!
The motion was not carried! You cannot defeat this man! The nomination was made unanimous. The delegates, desperate to leave town before they incurred more hotel expenses, then proceeded to the vice presidential nomination.
Harding wanted Senator Irvine Lenroot of Wisconsin, who was unwilling to run, but before Lenroot's name could be withdrawn and another candidate decided on, an Oregon delegate proposed Governor Coolidge, which was met with a roar of approval from the delegates.
Coolidge, popular for his role in breaking the Boston police strike of , was nominated for vice president, receiving two and a fraction votes more than Harding had.
On such things, Rollo, turns the destiny of nations. The New York World found Harding the least-qualified candidate since James Buchanan , deeming the Ohio senator a "weak and mediocre" man who "never had an original idea.
The Democratic National Convention opened in San Francisco on June 28, , under a shadow cast by Woodrow Wilson, who wished to be nominated for a third term.
Delegates were convinced Wilson's health would not permit him to serve, and looked elsewhere for a candidate. Former Treasury Secretary William G. McAdoo was a major contender, but he was Wilson's son-in-law, and refused to consider a nomination so long as the president wanted it.
Mitchell Palmer. As Cox was, when not in politics, a newspaper owner and editor, this placed two Ohio editors against each other for the presidency, and some complained there was no real political choice.
Both Cox and Harding were economic conservatives, and were reluctant progressives at best. Harding elected to conduct a front porch campaign , like McKinley in In the meantime, Cox and Roosevelt stumped the nation, giving hundreds of speeches.
Coolidge spoke in the Northeast, later on in the South, and was not a significant factor in the election. In Marion, Harding ran his campaign.
As a newspaperman himself, he fell into easy camaraderie with the press covering him, enjoying a relationship few presidents have equaled.
His " return to normalcy " theme was aided by the atmosphere that Marion provided, an orderly place that induced nostalgia in many voters.
The front porch campaign allowed Harding to avoid mistakes, and as time dwindled towards the election, his strength grew. The travels of the Democratic candidates eventually caused Harding to make several short speaking tours, but for the most part, he remained in Marion.
America had no need for another Wilson, Harding argued, appealing for a president "near the normal. Harding's vague oratory irritated some; McAdoo described a typical Harding speech as "an army of pompous phrases moving over the landscape in search of an idea.
Sometimes these meandering words actually capture a straggling thought and bear it triumphantly, a prisoner in their midst, until it died of servitude and over work.
Mencken concurred, "it reminds me of a string of wet sponges, it reminds me of tattered washing on the line; it reminds me of stale bean soup, of college yells, of dogs barking idiotically through endless nights.
It is so bad that a kind of grandeur creeps into it. It drags itself out of the dark abysm It is rumble and bumble.
It is balder and dash. Wilson had stated that the election would be a "great and solemn referendum" on the League of Nations, making it difficult for Cox to maneuver on the issue—although Roosevelt strongly supported the League, Cox was less enthusiastic.
This was general enough to satisfy most Republicans, and only a few bolted the party over this issue. By October, Cox had realized there was widespread public opposition to Article X, and stated that reservations to the treaty might be necessary; this shift allowed Harding to say no more on the subject.
The RNC hired Albert Lasker , an advertising executive from Chicago, to publicize Harding, and Lasker unleashed a broad-based advertising campaign that used many now-standard advertising techniques for the first time in a presidential campaign.
Lasker's approach included newsreels and sound recordings. Visitors to Marion had their photographs taken with Senator and Mrs.
Juni in der Marion Lodge No. Am August erreichte er den Meister-Grad, am 5. Januar erhielt er den Grad des A. Schottischen Ritus in Columbus. September wurde er zum Grad gekugelt , aber er verstarb, bevor man ihm den Grad verleihen konnte.
Aufgrund politischen Ränkeschmiedens seiner Parteifreunde gewann er dennoch die Nominierung vor dem zunächst lange bei den Abstimmungen führenden Leonard Wood.
Harding verneinte dies. Nach der Nominierung wurde jedoch eine Affäre mit einer verheirateten Frau bekannt. Da es zu spät war, einen neuen Kandidaten aufzustellen, wurde die Familie der Frau mit Bestechung zum Schweigen gebracht.
Cox , Gouverneur von Ohio, an. Hardings Programm traf den Zeitgeist vieler Amerikaner. Er wurde massiv von der Presse unterstützt, und erstmals wurden Filmstars für einen Wahlkampf eingespannt.
Harding was elected to the Ohio State Senate in before taking office as lieutenant governor from to From to , he served in the U.
Along with running mate Coolidge, he defeated Democratic candidate James Cox by winning 60 percent of the popular vote and 76 percent of the Electoral College.
Though Harding himself was never implicated in any wrongdoing, his cabinet was embroiled in controversy. Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall was found to have leased public land to oil companies in exchange for gifts in the Teapot Dome Scandal.
He spent a little under a year in prison. Attorney General Harry Daugherty was accused of selling liquor permits during Prohibition.
Several other officials took bribes. Harding married his wife Florence in , but he was far from faithful: He had two affairs that we know of.
In , letters between Harding and one of his mistresses that had been sealed for 50 years were finally released by the Library of Congress.
In them, Harding expressed his affection for his mistress, Carrie Fulton Phillips. Written on official Senate stationary, the letters, dated between and , offer a glimpse into his proclivities.
Grant became the country's 18th president and while in office enjoyed poker. So did numerous other politicians as the 19th century came to a close.
Among that group was Theodore Roosevelt who used poker as a way to gain entry into social circles while moving up through the ranks to the vice presidency.
Before his first term ended he began advancing a series of domestic policies presented as the "Square Deal. Much as poker had been dominated by cheating -- particularly in the saloons and on the steamboats of the Old West -- more games were being played "on the square" as the new century began.
Similarly TR's "Square Deal" sought to protect consumers against overly powerful businesses, creating a level playing field for all.
Do not let him wrong any one, and do not let him be wronged. Clarifying his position in a speech after being elected on his own, TR was even more explicit about the poker analogy.
Theodore Roosevelt's successor, William Howard Taft, also played poker, occasionally joining games hosted by the industrialist Henry Frick. But no president had ever previously shown such dedication to poker as would the nation's 29th president -- Warren G.
Harding would only serve just two-and-a-half years before death cut short his tenure. Though Harding was popular, his administration was found to be corrupt in numerous ways, the Teapot Dome scandal the most notable.
Nor did the revelation of Harding's extra-marital affairs help his posthumous reputation.This was done with the consent of Navy Secretary Edwin C. During the campaign, he gave over speeches. Richard Nixon By contrast, Eisenhower's vice-president Richard Hitman Online by most accounts apparently possessed the Ray Ban Piloten Sonnenbrille instinct when it came to poker. He started with nothing, and through working, stalling, bluffing, withholding payments, borrowing back wages, boasting, and manipulating, he turned a dying rag into a powerful small-town newspaper. He went to Texas, where he fished and played golf with his friend Frank Scobey soon to be Director of the Mintthen took ship for the Panama Canal Zone.
