4. I thought Buchanan was a Republican?

I stand corrected, he was a Democrat according to wiki.

5. This is a very unrealistic thread. I don't think anyone can seriously compare Van Buren,

Polk, Buchanan, or Grover Cleveland with the democrats starting with FDR.

There has been a huge shift in the parties over the last 100-200 years. I don't think anyone would seriously consider Abraham Lincoln or Theodore Roosevelt a member of today's republican party.
