70. How about this (for all the responders to my post) -- Henry Wallace was the Ralph Nader of '48.
He created a third party run in the Truman/Dewey contest that pulled off votes from the left. Yes, Truman won, but it was a close-run thing. In fact, the conventional wisdom at the time was that Dewey would win (remember the "Dewey Defeats Truman" headlines?)

Because of his anti-Democratic Party pre-Naderite splittist recklessness, Henry Wallace is perhaps not an appropriate icon on DU.
