Teddy Roosevelt was a weak, asthmatic child who grew up to be one
of the most robust and ambitious U.S. presidents ever. A former New
York City police commissioner, author, and hero of the Spanish-American
War, he reluctantly accepted an offer to become William McKinley's
vice president upon McKinley's re-election in 1900. When McKinley
was assassinated in 1901, Roosevelt became the youngest man ever to
become president. He served two terms, won the Nobel Peace Prize in
1905, and strengthened the executive branch through his progressive
agenda and the sheer force of his personality. He is often remembered
for his policy pronouncement, "Speak softly and carry a big stick."
