It has been said that "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them." In his youth, there was little to indicate that Theodore Roosevelt was destined for greatness. He spent much of his childhood bedridden, suffering from asthma. Roosevelt, however, overcame his ailments and dedicated his life to achieving greatness in every aspect of his life: physically, intellectually, and professionally. When Roosevelt became president in 1901, he implemented progressive policies chiefly to make America a great nation. In this episode, we cover how Roosevelt's personal crusade changed the course of American history.
