The paper discusses the real effect of the assassination of President McKinley. The paper examines how Theodore Roosevelt entered the White House after three decades during which Congress had consistently had the upper hand over the President. The paper further examines his many accomplishments, of which the Panama Canal is considered very important; and although Congress wasn't always on his side when it came to building the canal, Roosevelt used his charm, his brains, and his presidential power to push it through.
