    with any political party -- he was, among other things, a masterful politician and coalition builder.  There is no way he would have come out in favor of one party over another, especially then when both parties still had liberal members in those days.  He would take all the support he could muster.

    The one thing we do know is that he would not have aligned himself with conservatives (who fought against civil rights), so he most definitely would not have been a Republican today, since they've purged the liberals and moderates.
