Wilson was perhaps the most significant transitional figure in the White House since Lincoln. He took a party based on machine politics in the wake of the Civil War, rooted in southern conservatism, and shifted its basis to be far more progressive, both domestically and internationally. In an astounding turn of events that foreshadowed the century of political realignments to come, Wilson’s two terms in office radically altered the orientation of the Democratic Party, which after 1913 began to assume the mantle of reform while Republicans from Harding to Coolidge to Hoover became more conservative in o utlook.
The subsequent historiography has largely differed on where to place emphasis on engagements abroad and when, where, and how to assess blame on Wilson. Scholars such as George Herring have emphasized “involvement without commitment” as characterizing most US projects abroad under Harding, Coolidge, and Hoover (Herring 2008).

The favorable treatments emerged from Denna Frank Fleming’s brief 1930 book and more influential and longer work of 1932, The United States and the League of Nations, 1918–1920.
