Clinton Sex Scandal Rare is a person that crosses the path of the White House without some emotion of envy or awe. This building epitomizes world leadership and unprecedented power.

Liberalism And Freedom
Liberalism and Freedom Liberalism is a force that has produced change from the birth of this nation to the politics of today. Liberal tenets have been a basis of thought and action in American politics since well before the signing of the Constitution.

FDR
FDR The world has known many great leaders, especially in the post-Civil War era. Winston Churchill, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Harry Truman all rank with the most prominent leaders of all time. However, in my opinion President Franklin Roosevelt made the most difference out of anybody in this century. He began a new era in American history by ending the Great Depression that the country had succumbed to in 1929. Without him ending the Depression, who knows where this country could have gone?

It was the first of several that would be built there in the next 10 years. The machinery to spin and weave cotton into cloth would be driven by water power. All that the factory owners needed was a dependable supply of labor to tend the machines. As most jobs in cotton factories required neither great strength nor special skills,

The Treaty of Versailles - Source Based Questions P.Shyam Sundar 11G a) Many historians have viewed the Treaty of Versailles in varied contexts. Some historians support the German claim that the treaty was extremely harsh towards them while others seem to acknowledge the fact that the Treaty was anything but damaging to the Germans, as the Second World War seems to prove. But the most important aspect to focus on in the answering of this question is the concept of nationalism. Source C is a quot

Role of Ho Chi Minh - 1954
The role of leadership is crucial in any revolutionary or nationalist struggle and it can be argued that the leadership of Ho Chi Minh gave the Vietnamese a decisive advantage in the wars against the French and Americans (whose weaponry was highly developed and far superior). However, Ho Chi Minh?s leadership overcame this drawback because he gave to the people a common purpose; he inspired a determination and discipline that saw them endure extreme hardship to achieve their goals of unification
