I did not infringe upon the policy-making powers that I felt the Constitution gave Congress. But the determination of foreign policy became a presidential concern. When the French Revolution led to a major war between France and England, I refused to accept entirely the recommendations of either my Secretary of State, who was pro-French, or my Secretary of the Treasury, who was pro-British. Rather, I insisted upon a neutral course until the United States could grow stronger./p>

I rose to fame in the Midwest as the voice of the Chicago Cubs for Iowans who turned into WHO radio in Des Moines, where I re-created Cubs games off the teletype. It was during a spring training trip to Catalina Island, where the Cubbies assembled each February, that I got the idea to go to Hollywood for a screen test.
