What saved Teddy Roosevelt from assassination?

While Theodore Roosevelt was campaigning in Milwaukee in 1912, a would-be assassin fired a bullet into the right side of his chest.

Nevertheless, the bullet lodged itself just short of his lung, and, dripping in blood, Roosevelt pulled himself up to the podium. He asked the crowd to please “…be very quiet and excuse me from making a long speech. I’ll do the best I can, but there’s a bullet in my body. . . I have a message to deliver, and I will deliver it as long as there is life in my body.” He spoke for 90 minutes, but was unable to refer to his text due to the gaping hole which the bullet had torn through it.
