Democrats are having a celebration in neighboring Idaho Falls. It’s called the Truman Day dinner.
so they settled on Truman. And ignored his youthful Klan activities
There was a time when these were called Jefferson-Jackson Day dinners, however. Both men were slave owners and one was especially unkind when dealing with indigenous tribes. They were very much men of their times but among the aggrieved Democrats of today the names had to be scrapped.
They couldn’t adopt Woodrow Wilson (racist), FDR (put people in internment camps), Kennedy (serial adulterer), and LBJ (liar and unpopular war), so they settled on Harry Truman. And ignored his youthful Klan activities.
Slim pickings, wouldn’t you say?

I suggest Grover Cleveland. He fathered an illegitimate child in the 19th Century. He displayed modern Democrat mores in the Victorian Age.
“Ma, Ma, where’s my Pa? Off to the White House, hah, hah, hah!
