Andrew Jackson, being a tyrant, abused his power in his time of presidency. He was the 7th president, but before Jackson’s presidency, he had no political experience. One of the only things that really qualified him was the hardships he went through when he was younger. His father had died while Jackson was young and Jackson received the reputation as a “self-made man”, or an independent man. This title gave him a boost on reasons of why he should become president.
The beginning of the speech went fairly well as he was honoring Washington, however, he ended up ridiculing Congress. President Johnson usually spoke harshly about Congress and his mouth had the tendency to get him in trouble. In his speech, Johnson said, “I find men I care not by what name you call them…who still stand opposed to the restoration of the Union of these States.” He later would call out Thaddeus Stevens, Charles Sumner, and Wendell Phillips for plotting his assassination. In his speech, Johnson said, “I say that I have no doubt the intention was to incite assassination, and so get out of the way the obstacle from place and power.” Thaddeus Stevens and the radical Republicans viewed Johnson’s speech as a declaration of war. Andrew Johnson was a man who was not afraid to speak out against Congress.
Characteristically, Miller had two reputations as a public policy analyst, first as a compromiser between black radicals and conservatives, and second as a race spokesman during the prolonged crisis of disfranchisement and the denial of civil rights by white supremacists and their elected representatives in Congress. The years after World War I were difficult ones for Miller. J. Stanley Durkee, the last of Howard 's white presidents, was appointed in 1918 and set out to curtail the baronial power of the deans by building a new central administration. Miller, a perpetually powerful dean, was demoted in 1919 to dean of a new junior college, which was later abolished in 1925. A leader in the movement to have a black president of Howard, Miller was a perennial favorite of the alumni but was never selected.
After completing college, Nixon earned a career to be a lawyer, but this did not satisfy him. Also, his parents were not very pleased with his position as a lawyer. 2“He was always the type of fellow that rose to the top and was the president of this and the president of that,” Gerard Kepple agreed, “and always had a sense of leadership.” Therefore, Nixon knew that the only way to leave a mark in history was through politics. While Nixon was seeking for an opportunity of recognition, he met some Republicans. The Republicans admired his point of view of leadership, and they encouraged him to run for a constitutional position.
Any individual who wants to be reelected wants to run just as great, or even greater of a campaign to win the election as they once did. However, Bulworth did not, he spoke about exactly what he wanted to talk about to whomever he wanted to talk to. A liberal who later is accused of being conservative politician, despises his life and job. He lost millions of dollars in the market and has no sense of hope for the future. He then signs a lucrative deal with a life insurance company which will give huge amounts of money to his daughter.
When the North was in power many people lost beliefs on Ngo Dinh Diem (Prime Minister) since he declined the national election. He also outsmarted Bao Dai and became the President of the Republic of Vietnam.(vietnamwar.info).

Bush who lead the polls in the wake of the Operation Desert Storm success, Democrat Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton who was gradually increasing in popularity, and the independent Texas businessman Ross Perot who appealed to the public as the voice of all fed up Americans. (Miller Center, 2015) During the beginning of the primaries Clinton endured a tough campaign as a result of having to deal with a scandal revolving around the Vietnam War and his ability to avoid the draft, a situation that caused him to drop twenty points in the polls. Critics also felt he lacked experience in foreign policy but coupled with the fact that he was a popular candidate in a state that has voted for Republicans in four of the last five presidential elections and that he seemed to attract a wide variety of people he was a more appealing candidate for the Democratic nomination than the other

In the 1998 election Eydadéma ran against many other candidates and won however the people were not pleased and rioted against him. He was charged with voter intimidation and fraud, unfortunately because Gilchrist Olympio (Eydadéma’s main competitor) had been living in exile and there is a law stating you must be living the country Gilchrist Olympio was eliminated from the presidential race. Sometime in February 2005 Eydadéma passed way, the military then appointed his son, Faure Gnassingbé as the President of the Republic of Togo. The Togolese people did not like the fact that the military simply appointed Faure instead of holding a vote and other nations had him hold a vote, a vote that Faure came out victorious. Like his father before him, Faure was accused of rigging the vote and there was a riot, however he was relieved of
Unfortunately for the United States, this passing of the torch came as a result of a brutal attack on President Kennedy that resulted in his death. In this tragic turn of events, Lyndon Johnson made the transition from an almost unrecognizable Vice President to holding the most powerful office in the world. Although he now had power he so longed for, there had been a terrific and terrible price to pay. As the 36th president of the United States, President Johnson was forced to do his best to lead the United States through and out of the Vietnam War. It was a task that most would not envy, and it proved to be a daunting task even for someone as abrasive as Lyndon Johnson.
