Overview
No American president exceeded Grover Cleveland's devotion to principle and political courage. Yet today, Cleveland is remembered, if at all, simply as a historical curiosity--the only president to have served non-consecutive terms. In this illuminating biography, John M. Pafford reveals one of the most compelling characters ever to have occupied the White House, a leader whose unflinching stands for free enterprise and limited, Constitutional government are a beacon in the political tempest of our own time. Grover Cleveland is the forgotten conservative, Pafford argues: a man of dignity, integrity, and courage who fought corruption and eliminated taxpayer funding of projects that he considered outside the purview of government. -The lesson should be constantly enforced, - Cleveland warned the nation, -that, though the people support the government, the government should not support the people.-
