    You are right that he was from New Jersey. That I am not denying.

    Before Wilson began his studies at Johns Hopkins in what states did he grow up and spend the vast majority of his life in? When you figure out the answer to that question, then you should understand why I think it is a stretch to call him a northerner.

    Wilson was a man of the South? Seriously?

    I won't go so far as to say that Wilson "wasn't a northerner," but he spent much of a his formative years in the South, and his parents identified with the Confederacy.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Looks like Woody was the guy in '12. And yes, I admit, I did not look back far enough into his background, but it's not like the north was much different from the south in their support of him.

    So the South was full of dirty Progressives in 1912?

    sorry, i meant progressive as in the Progressive Movement in general, of which Wilson is a central figure.

    not in the party sense.

    Much, if not of the entire election was the differing visions of progressivism, actually.
