From COMM 455 student Jake Fedechko:

Niall Palmer reflects upon Harding and his historical legacy in “fact and fiction.” The article quotes William Allen White’s autobiography: “Harding shared his befuddlement over taxation with Winston Churchill, then British Chancellor of the Exchequer. In his autobiography, White seems slightly more sympathetic to Harding’s predicament, and recalls presidential secretary Judson Welliver’s comments, ‘Lord, Lord, man! You can’t know what the president is going through. You see he doesn’t understand it; he just doesn’t know a thousand things that he ought to know. And he realizes his ignorance, and he is afraid.’
