Theodore Roosevelt's life seemed to be directing him towards an ultimate purpose. He was headed in the direction of genius--genius at political leadership. He was perhaps the most perfectly prepared president we have ever had. He seemed to understand this while leading a group of men called the Rough Riders. He understood that it was up to him to lead ordinary people, Americans of mixed ancestry, ordinary, courageous people, to a better life. Working to correct inhumane living and working conditions, he bettered the lives of the then and future Americans. He also led the United States into the Twentieth Century and made it a world power.
