Really like what I've read about Dewey.  And I know he's hated on this forum, but I believe Rockefeller would have made a good President had he ever gotten the nomination.  No, he wasn't perfect and he clearly was a little power hungry, but his family had a genuinely impressive civil rights legacy, and I think he would have brought better leadership on that issue than Eisenhower, Nixon or JFK (not that any of these three had particularly bad records).

Always was a fan of Wendell Willkie for some reason, the guy just had it. The IT factor. He seemed like a decent man he just got fed to the wolves. Even FDR liked him.

Put him in another decade with more experience he prob could have won.

Quote from:  My Immortal
“What do you know, Hargrid? You’re just a little Hogwarts student!”

“I MAY BE A HOGWARTS STUDENT….” Hargirid paused angrily. “BUT I AM ALSO A SATANIST!”

“This cannot be.” Snap said in a crisp voice as blood dripped from his hand where Dumblydore’s wand had shot him. “There must be other factors.”

“YOU DON’T HAVE ANY!” I yelled in madly.
