3 days.

For me, it would have probably been Debs, though TR is a possibility. Certainly not Woody anyway.

probably Taft, though w/o hindsight possibly Wilson.  Wilson seemed at some times to want to devolve power (both corporate and political) and other times to want to concentrate it in government (esp. executive) so I'm not sure how I would have perceived him at the time.

Such a great collection of candidates here. I wouldn't regret voting for any of them that much, but though my heart says Debs, my mind says TR; I'm going with Roosevelt.

Toss-up between Taft and TR, but probably Taft.

I love how all these "progressive leftists" are perfectly okay with supporting an imperialistic jingoistic warmonger.

Wilson couldn't have been considered a warmonger in 1912, and for all his faults related to WW1 his approach was anything but imperialistic.

I would vote the only candidate who was at least honest about being a Socialist, Debs.
