Episode Summary

Never Kick a Man Upstairs
The story of Teddy Roosevelt's career from the time he was appointed Assistant Secretary of the Navy to his accession to the Presidency by virtue of McKinley's assassination. With sharp conciseness, the politicking of Boss Platt was sketched rapidly but fully a Platt engineered Roosevelt nomination to the vice presidency to get Teddy out of Boss Platt's hair in New York State.
