Eisenhower is within my lifetime. I was an toddler when he left office, so I don’t remember his presidency.

That said, I don’t recall reading anything about President Eisenhower which indicated he did anything corrupt or criminal.

I do recall reading a book about him when he was running for President. Either party would have welcomed him at the head of its ticket. The book said he chose the Republican Party because his time in WW2 showed him the dangers of one-party states, and the GOP was close to being wiped out after the Great Depression.

It was that and he feared Robert Taft being nominated. I like Ike. There’s some stuff he did that I didn’t like I.e. staying silent on McCarthy, the Iranian coup, Nixon, but he is the best GOP President in the last century.
