152. Yes, I was. Thanks.
"You're trying to spin the sources away - even going so far as to DENY the sources - which was expected. In fact, calls from the left for sources are usually an exercise in futility because they're never good enough. For example:"

No. Your sources never addressed my points. That's not my problem, it is yours.

"Which certainly didn't prevent him from writing about the things happening before then, including a foreshadowing the next campaign."

It did prevent him from analyzing events in 1944 with the same scrutiny as earlier events, since he died before he could write much about that period.

"Should be obvious to anyone. In the middle of war, the White House isn't going to broadcast the VP is revealing secrets and badmouthing the president. Of course he'll public ally back Wallace."

Oh, you mean like Lincoln backed Hannibal Hamlin?

Wait, never mind. :eyes:

"Already have and it's well documented. The left consisted of people like Sinclair, Norman Thomas, and Robert La Follette and Phil La Follette. In fact, in 1938 when the Dems lost 81 seats in the House, 8 seats in the Senate, and 13 governorships, FDR said he was happy that Phil La Follette and the Farmer-Labor party had been eliminated."

Great. Doesn't change the fact that FDR incorporated many of their ideas, particularly in his expansion of New Deal government programs. I'd be happy if the Green party ceased to exist but that doesn't make me any less of a liberal.
