CALVIN COOLIDGE




[Coolidge] Peter Hannaford, THE QUOTABLE CALVIN COOLIDGE: Sensible Words for a New Century. . VG/VG. (Images from the Past, 2000). 183 pages.
~~~ President Calvin Coolidge has only recently begun to get the reappraisal he deserves.

His written and spoken words are strikingly applicable to today. His statements about radio and then-fledgling television - with appropriate word changes - would do for our era of VCRs, satellites, and broadband communications. We consider the effects of large political campaign contributions and of globalization to be current issues, but Coolidge was there first, as his quotations on these subjects show. ~~~ Coolidge believed in -- and practiced -- lean, direct, clear prose. It is unadorned, thus giving it power. Unlike the poll-driven banalities and hyperbole practiced by many latter-day politicians. Coolidge gives it to us straight. ~~~ That was how he lived his life. Calvin Coolidge displayed the very finest qualities of state and national leadership, yet he was described simply and appropriately, by one who knew him well, as "a good and kindly man."
