Competing Philosophies of Presidents Madison and Wilson
“Can Someone from the Class of 1771 Save the Nation from Someone from the Class of 1879?” was a James Madison Program 10th Anniversary Celebration Lecture.
George Will (Princeton class of 1968) compared the progressive politics championed by President Woodrow Wilson (Princeton class of 1879) to the freedom-oriented politics of James Madison (Princeton class of 1771) and how their competing visions have shaped the presidency.
