    President of the modern era, and was also the most truly (small c) conservative.

    He also lived up to the spirit of his campaign more than any other President I'm aware of, bar maybe Jefferson.

    He promised to end the Korean war, he did.  He promised to maintain the New Deal without radical expansion (agree or not) and he did.

    He ran on moderate movement on Civil Rights, and that's what he delivered - moderate movement with a firm hand.  

    Personally, I think more radical would have been better - but he delivered exactly what he ran on.

    Justice William Brennan was a recess appointment.
