    Not only is your second fact astounding, it’s also depressing in light of Peckham’s claim to fame: look what kind of nominee it takes to get past a Republican Senate…

    Cleveland was a conservative Democrat at that.

    Wilson was the only Democratic President until FDR, then Congress was mostly controlled by Democrats for quite some time. There is something of a chance things might change in the next four years.

    As to his brother, I see the problem was a patronage dispute between Cleveland and a NY senator. By the time Rufus was nominated, election defeats made the senator weaker politically. His brother was involved in the prosecution against Boss Tweed.
