36. ? Wiki says Wallace ran in 1948 as the nominee of the Progressive Party. What's your problem?

Your post made me look him up, and he seems to have been a very interesting guy -- farmer, Vice President of the US, Sec of Ag, Sec of Commerce, Episcopalian (most Communists are officially atheist), invited to attend JFK's inauguration. In 1950 he broke with the Progressives and became anti-Communist because of Stalin.

Thanks for prompting me to learn more about this man.
