Woodrow Wilson Two Raw Eggs In Fruit Juice

Woodrow Wilson Two Raw Eggs In Fruit Juice, On March 4th, 1913, Wilson was inaugurated the 28th President of the United States.

Soon after he took office, Wilson announced that he would do something no president in 113 years had done: address the Congress in person. Then he sat down at his typewriter, a machine which he had been one of the first Americans to embrace, and began tapping out his speech.

Woodrow Wilson I am very glad indeed to have this opportunity to address the two Houses directly and to verify for myself the impression that the President of the United States is a person, not a mere department of the Government hailing Congress from some isolated island of jealous power, sending messages, not speaking naturally and with his own voice – that he is a human being trying to cooperate with other human beings in a common service.

As he settled into his new job, Wilson established a strict schedule. He arrived at eight each day for a breakfast of coffee, oatmeal, and two raw eggs in fruit juice – “like swallowing a newborn baby,” he said. He then dictated from nine to ten a.m. and saw visitors until one. After lunch with his family, he returned to his office.

Nearly all who came to see him there were struck by the President’s deep sense of mission. When the chairman of the Democratic Party came to demand a job in return for helping Wilson win the presidency, Wilson told him that it was not the Democratic Party, but God, who had made him president.

Historian: John Morton Blum
A character in any President is an important part of the way he handles his office. Now in Wilson’s case let’s just take one aspect of his character, his certitude. His certitude that he was right. Now certitude is a great asset, when you have to fight for what you believe in and when you convince other people that your correct. But certitude is a serious obstacle when you’re trying to achieve something to which there’s a good deal of opposition and where it’s necessary to compromise in order to have your way.
