#33 Joseph P. Kennedy 1941 - 1949Kennedy was chosen as the Democratic nominee in the 1940 election, and won a close race against his republican challenger Wendell Willkie. Kennedy preached a program of non intervention in europe, but held a tough line against Japanese expansion in Asia. He slowly disestablished FDR's social policies and returned to Calvin Coolidge's message of "the business of america is business". He beat Robert Dewey in the 1944 election on his record of keeping america out of the european war, and that the Reich had created one vast new market in europe.
#34 Robert Taft 1949 - 1953Taft defeated James Byrnes in the 1948 election. He continued Kennedy's policies with business, but was more isolationist in international affairs. At home he curbed the influence of labor unions, and disassembled most New Deal policies. Died in office, July 1953.
