Given the time in which he was required to make critical decisions--Greece, the Marshal Plan, Iron Curtain, Berlin, NATO, Korea, MacArthur, Armed Serices Act of '47, the hydrogen bomb, Eugene McCarthy and the myriad other crises in conjuction with the on-set of the Cold War, Harry S Truman(no period, his middle name is the letter ''S'' not the first letter of a middle name), will go down in history as one of the greatest presidents.
I agree. And you know what? George W. reminds me alot of Truman. W has stood up to the phoney intellectuals of Harvard as did Truman. In 1948 as the left and right of the Dem party split off to Henry Wallace (gag) and Strom Thurmund, Harry did his job, didn't care about the criticism, and got reelected.
The MSM hated Truman, and they hate W. I think both will be remembered as Greats.
