POTUS 27 - Chief Executive & Chief Justice
Show Notes

William Howard Taft was the hand-picked successor by Theodore Roosevelt himself.  But after just a couple years in The White House, their tight relationship fell apart, and Taft’s run for a 2nd term became the target for TR’s political attacks.  And what did all of this inner-party feuding do…it caused them both to lose!  Taft was out, but his story was far from over.  The man who loved the law, got his dream job when he became the first and only ex-POTUS to become Chief Justice of The SCOTUS!
