After two years in office, Wilson felt as if he had accomplished his goals.  He made major changes but never intended to push too far, nothing like social welfare that FDR would bring later.  One reason he did not want to push was that he still needed the conservative South on his side.  Another major issue was that his wife died and he was mourning her and was not sure he wanted to remain in politics.  Two years later however, in 1916, Wilson was back.
