Today -100: January 24, 1918: Teddy’s back

Headline of the Day -100: 

Well, not really. Some Republican guests at TR’s son-in-law’s house seem to accept the “Colonel’s” leadership for 1920. One topic of discussion: whether it is patriotic to publicly criticize Wilson’s management of the war. I leave it to the reader to guess on what side of that argument Roosevelt falls.

TR wants Republicans to push for 1) compulsory military service, forever, 2) a War Cabinet and a Munitions director, 3) wartime measures such as control of the railroads expiring when the war ends.
