"The History of The United States, As Told Through its Vices."

Dec 23, 2018

Banker, Comptroller, Campaign Manager and Nobel Peace Prize Winner Charles G. Dawes came to the Vice Presidency with many achievements already in hand.  A master of systems of supply and organization, he had served in the Army under Pershing and developed the Allies supply system, then re-engineered the reparations payments Germany owed and the resulting financial entanglements for world governments after the war.  He cast a shadow over his President, Calvin Coolidge, and confronted the Senate.  That didn't endear him to either.  Music by Lee Rosevere and guest is Chris Novembrino of Dont Worry About the Government.
