Harding even with hindsight. He was not fit for the presidency but history has treated him much worse than he actually was.

With hindsight Cox is obviously the right choice. Backing out of the League of Nations was a disastrous choice, and of course Harding ran one of the most corrupt, ineffectual administrations in history. Without hindsight though I probably would have gone Harding as a reaction to Wilson's crackdown on civil liberties

Between those two, Harding. Debs would have been my ultimate preference however.

Neither of the major party nominees. I would have enthusiastically  voted for Eugene V. Debs had I been alive in 1920.

to be very dense... what was wrong with Cox? He sounds like a relatively soundish progressive democrat for the era?

1. He was a democrat
2. He wasn't Debs.

Debs. Harding is preferable.

I'm a Debs fan, but Cox would have been good since the US should have joined the League of Nations.
