The two men were dissimilar in many respects. Cleveland was a mama's boy to the end of his life, while Wilson, though emotionally attached to his mother, seems to have been most influenced intellectually by his dominant and idolized father. Cleveland grew into a poorly educated, slow- thinking, massive man, while Wilson developed into a brilliant scholar with the "lean and hungry look" of "yond Cassius." Cleveland's young manhood was structured largely by his efforts to support his widowed mother, while Wilson had every advantage moderately well-to- do and doting parents could give him. But the careers of the New Jerseyite and the Virginian were strikingly similar in m a n y ways. Cleveland dropped his first name early on, and so did Wilson. Cleveland's father was a not v e r y . s u c c e s s f u l Presbyterian minister, and so was Wilson's. Both men went directly to the Presidency from the governor's chair of their respective states, both had been strong, reformist governors and would be strong, reformist Presidents and both would leave the White House unhappy, unpopular and apparently unsuccessful Chief Executives. Cleveland's unprecedented popularity at the polls and his firmness and honesty as governor of New York made him a favorite at the Democratic convention of 1884, and he won easily on the seond ballot. James G. Elaine, who had so narrowly missed the nomination four years b e f o r e , was the Republican nominee. Outnumbered, the Democrats drew unexpected s u p p o r t f r o m f o r m e r l y Republican newspapers and v o t e r s -- d u b b e d t h e " M u g w u m p s " -- a n d the campaign, largely ignoring issues, quickly developed into one of the noisiest and nastiest on record. Elaine's integrity gap was wide and deep, so marchers in Democratic torchlight parades chanted: Blaine! Blaine! James G. Blaine! Continental liar from the State of Maine! Cleveland, who had fathered a child out of wedlock, became the mock- hero of the oft-repeated Republican chant: Ma! Ma! Where's my Pa? Gone to the While House, Ha! Ha! Ha! Grover Cleveland (Administration: March 4, 1885-March 3, 1889) On a more sober level, the contest centered around Cleveland's integrity and E l a i n e ' s c h a r i s m a , a n d charm well might have won h a d n o t a P r o t e s t a n t clergyman, speaking on behalf of Blaine, referred to the Democrats as the party of "rum, Romanism and rebellion." When Blaine f a i l e d t o d i s a v o w t h e remark, the Democrats printed and distributed' the offending phrase outside Catholic churches the Sunday before the election. Blaine blamed the unhappy phrase for his defeat, getting 48.2 per cent of the votes to Cleveland's 48.5 per cent. The leavings were picked up by the Greenback and Prohibition parties, the Prohibitionists having advanced from 5,000 to 150,000 votes in four elections. Delivering his inaugural a d d r e s s e n t i r e l y f r o m memory--as had Franklin P i e r c e 3 2 y e a r s earlier--President Cleveland simply and briefly promised to work for the abandonment of "sectional p r e j u d i c e , " t o a v o i d ^'foreign broils." to effect "prudential economies" in government, to relieve people of "unnecessary taxation." pledged civil service reform and the "protection of the freedmen in their rights." In office, Cleveland ran headlong into "This dreadful, frightful, damnable office seeking." But, he fought the deluge so stubbornly that he alienated many of his supporters in becoming the most effective Presidential advocate of civil service extension up to his time. Although he was cautious in officially recognizing the rights of blacks, he did appoint a Negro to the highest- paying job in the District of Columbia. Cleveland called for an end to the coinage of silver dollars, warning that the nation's fiscal solvency was being endangered by gold hoarding, and he vetoed special interests bills so relentlessly that he exercised the veto more times than all previous Presidents had done, 300 to 132. Nominated by acclamation for a second term, Cleveland seemed well on the way to victory over Republican Benjamin H a r r i s o n when he unexpectedly sent a tariff- r e d u c t i o n message t o Congress, angering industrial and financial interests. Cleveland outpolled Harrison by 100,000 votes, but lost New York and the election. 168 to 233. When he turned the P r e s i d e n c y o v e r t o Harrison, Cleveland said there was "no happier man in the United States." But. his pretty, young wife, Frances Folsom Cleveland, whom he had married in the White House, had other ideas on the subject. "Take good care of the furniture," she told White House aides. "We are coming back just four years from today." Copyright 1972, Los Angeles Times Sunday Gazette-
