with a bullet in the chest

Which politician
spoke to the voters and a half hours with a bullet in the chest?

When Theodore Roosevelt in 1912, ran for president, during a meeting with the voters he was shot. Shot in the chest, breaking the case of glasses and a thick manuscript of a speech he wanted to say. However, Roosevelt did not leave the place - he drew public attention to the fact that he had just shot, and then said half an hour. Understand that wound is not dangerous to life, helped hunting experience - because it is not coughing blood, it means that the bullet is not pierced a lung. Subsequently confirmed that the bullet entered the chest at 76 mm, but removing it was not even riskier than leave it as is, and Roosevelt wore her whole life.
