Teddy Roosevelt -
"Perpetual Optimism is a force multiplier" - Colin Powell

One of the Director's at USA TODAY and I have a habit of trading quotes. Today he brought in "Americans learn only from catastrophy and not from experience" from Theodore Roosevelt. I don't think anyone ever enjoyed being President more than this guy; he's one of my heros. Last year I read Edmund Morris' The Rise of Theodore Roosevelt and then Theodore Rex. Here's some thoughts I set down on Teddy last year that give some summary of his accomplishments and spirit.
