Robert Taft

Robert Taft (1939-1953) was a Republican Senator from Ohio who challenged for the Presidential nomination in the 1940′s and 50′s.  He was not a classic “insider” which most likely prevented his being nominated for President.  The son of President William Howard Taft, he was a critic of the New Deal as well as the Nuremberg Trials.  Taft is most well known for his belief that the U.S. should avoid military intervention abroad, as profiled in his book, A Foreign Policy for Americans.
