 Harry S. Truman
      I think the much maligned Harry Truman one of the best United States Presidents ever.
Truman walked a fine line between appearing too ready to thrust the United States into foreign adventures (to the neo-isolationists on the Right) and too eager to confront the "peaceful socialist nations" of the Soviet Union and People's Republic of China (in the eyes of Pusillanimity International on the Left).
      Truman effectively saw through the paranoia of Stalin in his final years and thwarted Soviet advances in W. Europe and on the Korean Peninsula.
