In this era of partisan bashing and political grandstanding, where almost every inappropriate comment by an elected official or presidential candidate, right or left, generates ongoing outrage on social media, some of it well deserved, some the work of hysterics, the Republican party would seem to be under fire. In this context, it might be worthwhile to recall some remarkable Republican presidents: the icons; the trailblazers; the progressives. Like many of us they outgrew the limiting perspectives of their youth and in their maturity established high-water marks for leadership.
