-He was a bit of an outdoorsman so he always tried to protect the environment and use it's natural resources responsibly.

William H. Taft, Republican 1909-1913 -Taft tried to do everything different than Roosevelt almost as if he was trying to anger him.

-Taft was Roosevelt's handpicked successor, and Roosevelt believed that Taft would maintain many of Roosevelt's reforms. But he didn't. Woodrow Wilson, Democrat 1913-1920 -His domestic program expanded the role of the federal government in managing the economy and protecting the interest of citizens.
