Yes, his acceptance speech is very generous and civil. It's interesting that you, a conservative, are pro-Stevenson; that kind of lends support to my feeling that he was a man capable of winning support on both sides of the political spectrum (and I suspect he'd have won in 1952 if the Republican nominee had been Taft).
What do you think would have been the major differences in US and domestic foreign policy if he'd been in the White House?
