Ignore

If you do not know what I mean by this, ask me. But my definition is this: what presidents did something because of pressure on them from either congress or the press or even the american people.

I have two examples:

Lyndon Johnson on the Vietnam War and George H. W. Bush on breaking the read my lips pledge.

What do you think, which presidents did something not because they wanted too, but because they gave into pressure from those around them?

the birth of modern america & onward election Former Vice President Blanche Bruce defeats incumbent President Grover Cleveland in 1904. In an age of unpredictable election outcomes Bruce finds himself reelected in 1908 against an opponent whose name escapes me at the moment. Blanche Bruce served as Vice President under Frederick Douglas whom Cleveland defeated in 1900. His Vice President runs to replace Bruce in 1912.
