Son of a Quaker blacksmith, Herbert Clark Hoover brought to the Presidency an unparalleled reputation for public service as an engineer, administrator, and humanitarian.
After capably serving as Secretary of Commerce under Presidents Harding and Coolidge, Hoover became the Republican Presidential nominee in 1928. He said then: "We in America today are nearer to the final triumph over poverty than ever before in the history of any land." His election seemed to ensure prosperity. Yet within months the stock market crashed, and the Nation spiraled downward into depression.
Herb promises that his stay on Bootleg Survivor will not have the same effect. "I have a plan to feed the masses. Even if I must sacrifice myself."
Does this mean that Hoover is contimplating suicide?
"Not at all! But if the vote is ever close, I may volunteer my services as breakfast."
