The Last Good Democrat

Grover Cleveland.

22nd and 24th Preznit.

"Grover Cleveland, the last pretty-good Democrat (seriously: gold standard, anti-tariff, vetoed twice as many bills as all of his predecessors combined — Rand Paul is a fan), who pushed for the creation of a labor festival in September as cultural competition to the international workers’ celebration in May, sort of the reverse of the strategy of the early Church fathers’ choosing the dates of heathen festivals for the new Christian holidays."  -Kevin Williamson

Kevin is from Amarillo Texas, so the only Metrocon thing about him is the magazine he writes for.
