  • William Howard Taft was President of the United States during the early 20th century. He was noted for his immense weight. The town of Hartsfield's Landing first predicted the winner of the United States presidential election during Taft's presidential run. As President, Taft was heavily involved in the growing sport of baseball. He was the founder of the seventh inning stretch. In 1910, Taft was the first President to throw out the first pitch at a Washington Senators game.

  • 300px|right Ekde la praaj tempoj William Howard Taft estas substreka afero por la homoj: iu diris inter ordinaraj homoj en Strasburgo (junio 1980), ke antaŭa usona Prezidanto Taft estas unu el la plej ĝentilaj homoj en la mondo.

Mi supozas, ke mi konsentus kun multaj el liaj opinioj... estas ja tamen iom amuze ke en la Esperantomovado la avido kaj konsumemo ne estas pekoj, sed virtoj ne sufiĉe praktikataj, ĉu ne? Mi jam mem antaŭ kelkaj jaroj pensis pri ili kaj mi trovis, ke praktike ili estus tre maloportunaj. La kresko de niaj fortoj kaj la aliĝo de novaj homoj estas nepre kondiĉitaj de la konsciiĝo pri tiuj ĉi valoroj.

Taft assumed a prominent role in problem solving, assuming on some occasions the role of acting Secretary of State, while declining repeated offers from Roosevelt to serve on the Supreme Court. Riding a wave of popular support for fellow Republican Roosevelt, Taft won an easy victory in his 1908 bid for the presidency. In his only term, Taft's domestic agenda emphasized trust-busting, civil service reform, strengthening the Interstate Commerce Commission, improving the performance of the postal service, and passage of the Sixteenth Amendment. Abroad, Taft sought to further the economic development of nations in Latin America and Asia through "Dollar Diplomacy", and showed decisiveness and restraint in response to revolution in Mexico. The task-oriented Taft was oblivious to the political ramifications of his decisions, often alienated his own key constituencies, and was overwhelmingly defeated in his bid for a second term in the presidential election of 1912. In surveys of presidential scholars, Taft is usually ranked near the middle of lists of all American Presidents. After leaving office, Taft spent his time in academia, arbitration, and the pursuit of world peace through his self-founded League to Enforce Peace. In 1921, after the First World War, President Warren G. Harding appointed Taft Chief Justice of the United States. He served in this capacity until shortly before his death in 1930.

  • American president from 1909-1913. Also served as Governer-General of the Philippines from 1901-1903 (they named an avenue after him), and Chief Justice of the United States from 1921-1930. New Mexico and Arizona became states during his Presidency. One probably apocryphal legend credits him for "the seventh inning stretch". Known for being pretty heavy and once getting stuck in his own bathtub. We also all know that the Oval Office used to be called the Round Office until he walked in. Funny enough, his presidency led to at least 80 pounds' weight loss, and he became more interested in the outdoors afterward. As America: The Book pointed out, he was also the only President to become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, but nobody remembers that. It's worth noting that becoming Chief Justice was his life's dream: he only ran for president because T.R. and his wife wanted him to (ironically, his wife suffered a stroke shortly after his inauguration and was never able to enjoy her office as much as she might have liked). Taft was appointed to the court by Warren Harding, and is the only former president to have administered the oath of office to an incoming president (He did it for both Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover). The last President to have a moustache, or indeed, facial hair of any kind, possibly reflecting a rather unfortunate bias against it. Also the first president to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery.
