Chester Arthur was the dirty politician who shocked the nation with an honest presidency.  As VP, he was considered harmless with an inconsequential role, but when Garfield was shot, he suddenly found himself in the top job.  The country was full of doubt and fear over what this man with the terrible reputation might do.  But the weight of Presidential responsibility actually turned him around, fixing much of the corruption that he once took advantage of.
