Is it relevant that the person who saved the day had the same name as a previous US president?

Said president - republican? democrat? 20th Century? Second half?

*is rather baffled since no president has been in the democrat-republican party or the Whig party or the Federalist party since the 1800s*

When you say this president was from the 20th century, do you mean he was president somewhere between 1900 and 2000? He lived only between 1900 and 2000?

IS this president a U.S. president? Some other country? If so, which? Armenia? Austria? Azerbaijan? etc.... *pretend I listed every country by name here, please*

"So... the bear in the story saved the day? yes "

You mean the real, flesh and blood bear cub that Theodore refused to shoot in the all too familiar story saved the day? Or just the bear in your story?

Did the teddy bear save the day by... having its body used for protection of some sort? As a tool? Peter Pan relevant?

Was the bear used as a comforting device?
Was the bear a tool in a sense that...
it was used to enable something?
it was used to destroy something?
it was used to create something?
it was used as a means of escaping danger?
it was used as a defense mechanism?
it was used as a weapon?
it was used as a bandage? some other medical use?

Agh, I was going to guess teddy bear too... guess I'm not fast enough, I have to work on those lateral reflexes :)

Does this puzzle have to do with one event? Two events? A chain of events? Is the teddy bear present at the event(s)? All of the events?

Are there humans involved? If so, one? Two? Three? More? A big group? Are their locations relevant? Their relationships to each other?

Was something hidden inside the teddy bear? Was it used to convey a message? A sentiment? Was it given from one party to another? Was it stolen? Was it found? Was it lost? Was it cuddled with?

Does this puzzle have to do with one event? yes Two events? A chain of events? i guess technically there were a chain of events leading up to the main event, but let's just concern ourselves with the main event Is the teddy bear present at the event(s)? he sure is All of the events?

Are there humans involved? If so, one? Two? Three? More? A big group? A group, not sure of the exact number, but not a huge group. Maybe fivish? Are their locations relevant? yes Their relationships to each other? yesish

Was something hidden inside the teddy bear? no, but OTRT Was it used to convey a message? A sentiment? Was it given from one party to another? Was it stolen? Was it found? Was it lost? Was it cuddled with? no to rest, although cuddled with is also OTRT

No but OTRT to 'something hidden in the bear'. Was there something inside the teddy bear, but it wasn't hidden? Perhaps something like a sound-maker? a squeeker? a compartment for a child to put their treasures??
