I voted Roosevelt. He, Eisenhower and Lincoln were the only good presidents from the Republican party.

Teddy Roosevelt for sure.

Nelson Rockefeller would have been the most liberal Republican President had he ever become President.

Business and labour could not be in the same party, as their interests are diametrically opposed.  The same could be said of business and environmentalists.

Well, politics does make strange bedfellows. Are there no real-life examples of diamentrially opposed constituencies acting as members of the same party coalition?

Religious conservatives ought to be opposed to the sex oriented, pro-materialist, anti-family advertising campaigns of large corpororations. Family values, anybody?

He ended Vietnam, normalized relations with the Chinese, signed SALT I with the Soviets, oversaw the creation of landmark envoronmental legislation, instituted wage and price controls, did little to nothing to try and undo Great Society programs (in 1969, he unveiled his Family Assistance Plan, which would guarantee an annual income of $1600 for a family of four). By today's standards, Nixon's presidency was very liberal.
