Famous Democrats Of All Time

‘Democrat’ is a term used to refer to a member of the Democratic Party, an American political outfit. The Democratic Party is the brainchild of former political stalwart Andrew Jackson, the 7th President of the United States and was founded in 1828. Since then several leaders of the Democratic Party have been sworn in for the position of America’s supreme leader. Woodrow Wilson, Harry S Truman, Franklin D Roosevelt and John F Kennedy are considered to be the best Democrat Presidents of all time. During recent times, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were praised for their styles of governance and both these individuals were the darlings of the American masses. Obama doesn’t just hold the record for being the first black president in American history, but he is also praised for his unique initiatives such as ‘Obamacare’.
