My thoughts exactly.
Before that, 1984, 1972, 1928, 1924, 1920, all elections from 1868 to 1892, 1856, 1852.

I vote 1924, not counting LaFollette.

I like them, I just don't think they would have made good presidents - although I'm ready to remove Mondale. The same thing is true for Herbert Hoover, Robert LaFollette, and  Grover Cleveland btw.

scratch my 1924 answer. I can't believe I forgot 1964!

Also 1920 and probably 1916, I don't know a lot of about Hughes.

I don't dislike McGovern personally, I just think he would have been a horrible President. Just look at the way he ran his campaign.

He may have ran a horrible campaign, but he had all the right ideas.

That's very debatable. Too bad Muskie or Humphrey didn't get the nomination that year...

an unconditionial pullout of Vietnam was the only proper thing to do, and should've been done way earlier.

The war would have ended right before the 1968 election, except that Nixon sabatoged the peace talks.

True. While Humphrey wouldn't have done things exactly as I wanted he would've have at least been out of there in a year.

Once again jFRAUD you've gotten wrong again.

Here is what one of the articles, http://www.thenation.com/docprint.mhtml?i=20001106&s=wiener said:

In interviews with Summers, she said she met with Nixon and his campaign manager (and future Attorney General), John Mitchell, who told her to inform Saigon that if Nixon won the election, South Vietnam would get "a better deal."

Gee, I am stunned.  Nixon was privately informing the South Viet Namese that he was in favor of continuing to support South Viet Nam.  I guess they didn't read the newspapers or watch CBS News.  That's hardly "sabatoge."
