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:  Becoming Female
Suddenly, there was a loud boom. We looked out the window and saw a whole bunch of Death Eaters running into the castle! Umbridge screamed and dropped her teacup on the floor! Lucius burst into the office, along with Fenrir, Bellatrix and Ron.

"How COULD you!" Umbridge shrieked. "I thought we had a deal! We did a pinky swear, remember?"

"I had my fingers crossed behind my back," Lucius explained smugly.

"Damn the loopholes," yelled Umbridge!

Without any doubt this guy:



Wendell Willkie was a great man. I would have voted for him over any Democrat except FDR.

My no. 2 is Gerald Ford, I would have voted for him in 1976.
