The Republican Party stood at the brink of a civil war. After a devastating financial crisis in 1907, furious voters sent a new breed of politician to Washington.

Fearful of splitting the party, he compromised with OluKai Ohana B0733BRZPF 8 B(M) US|Guava Jelly/Black, the powerful Speaker of the House, and David Tate Luscious Women's Pump B074KHN4VK 6 B(M) US|Natural Combo, the master of the Senate, to pass modest reforms.
